ANOTHER 
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT 



re 



PARMINT 



The International Laboratories of 62 Oxford Street, London, W., Manufacturers of 
the famous "PARMINT" recipe, beg to announce that their Winter Advertising 
Campaign is now well under way and already the sales have increased enormously. All 
the leading daily, Sunday and weekly publications in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales 
are being used. Sunday and weekly papers are carrying their advertisement in every issue, 
while the dailies run them every other day. 

They earnestly advise all Chemists to examine their stock of ' PARMINT," and, if 
not well supplied, to place their order with their Wholesale House at once. No Chemist 
can afford to be caught short of stock. 

They also beg to anaounce that the front of their package has been slightly altered. 
Each package now bears their signature in script. 

" PARMINT " was the first preparation ever offered to the public in convenient 
form for mixing at home. It is the old original recipe which through Trade Mark and 
Copyright has defied imitation. It is a combination of essential oils which can be made into 
an effective cough or lung tonic by simply adding to it half a pint of ordinary sugar syrup. 

" PARMINT " does not injure your trade in ordinary Cough Syrups or lozenges, 
but, on the contrary, it brings to your counters a class of customers who will not buy an 
ordinary Cough Mixture. Thousands of people have a horror of prepared medicines, 
these are the people who buy " PARMINT," and who through its merits are brought 
back to your counters time and again. Hundreds of Doctors and Chemists are recom- 
mending it, and every sale you make means a satisfied and pleased customer. 

"PARMINT" is to be steadily advertised all the winter, and in stocking it you are 
placing a preparation on your shelves for which there is a good healthy demand, and one 
that is becoming a universal home remedy for coughs and colds. Yet, at the same time, 
one which does not interfere with the sales of your own preparations. " PARMINT " 
absolutely produces a new clientele. 

At the request of many of the Chemists, on August 1st we placed " PARMINT " 
on the P.A.T.A. List, and the price per dozen to the retail trade has been lowered to 
24/ - per dozen, while the advertised price remains at 2/6 per bottle. 

Every Wholesale House in England handles it. Don't be without it a day.

Proprietaries. 

SALES INCREASE DAILY. 



Chemists have made fine distributors of other manufacturer's goods for a bait of 
10 to 15 per cent, profit, with an occasional extra 10 per cent, for window space. 

Having had such a long education upon these terms, they still ask themselves 
where the profit comes in after allowing for working expenses. 

How can fair -minded Pharmacists introduce Proprietaries to their 
customers at double the price, when they are only just as good as those put up 
by Ucal ? 

C0 2 is C0 2 to the Pharmacist, whatever bluff the other proprietor uses. 

Don't forget the personal statement of 700 Pharmacists will carry weight even if 
it is on the actual cost of an article. 

There is still an opening for extra Ucalitc agents. Are you not in the very 
spot ? A postcard to Ucalite, Priory Court, Cheltenham, may assist you to decide.

AWARDS 




The number of dentifrices is myriad, their names are legion, 

95ut— 

in principle and in efficiency there is but one, 




THE OXYGEN TOOTH POWDER. 

Its principle is the evolution of oxygen. 

Its efficiency as a cleanser of the teeth is due to the oxygen which it generates 
when used. 

Not only antiseptic, but deodorant, two desirable properties of a tooth powder. Its oxidizing and deodorizing 
paver was obvious in our experiments. — THE LANCET, London, Eng. 

"Possesses not only strong antiseptic, but deodorizing and o ridizing properties, as the result of which the teeth, after a 
few days' use of CALOX, acquire a pearly whiteness— THE CHEMIST AND DRUGGIST. London. 

OALOX is entirely different from other denti frices. Its introduction marks a decided 
advance in the scientific development of a dentifrice, a fact which the dental profession 
the world over has been quick to recognise. Chemists should interest themselves in Oalox 
because only a chemist can explain the peculiar virtues and value of an oxygen-producing 

dentifrice.

LISTERINE 

The Popular American Antiseptic. 

A non-toxic antiseptic of known and definite power, 
prepared in a form convenient for immediate use ; of ready 
dilution, sightly, pleasant, and sufficiently powerful for all 
purposes of asepsis — 'these are advantages which Listerina 
emDodies. 

The success of Listerine is based upon merit, and the 
best advertisement of Listerine is — Listerine. 

LISTERINE DERMATIC SOAP 

Designed to meet the most exacting requirements of a 
saponaceous detergent for use in the antiseptic treatment of 
diseases of the skin. No animal fats, and only the best 
vegetable oils enter into its composition, and of these it 
contains a surplus, ' ' superfatted. " It is a bland, unirritating 
and remarkably efficient soap. 

LISTERINE TOOTH POWDER 

This powder is not intended to supplant Listerine in the 
daily toilet of the teeth, but is offered in response to the 
demand for a frictionary dentifrice to be used in conjunction 
with this well-known and time-tried antiseptic. 

Listerine Tooth Powder, like Listerine, will advertise 
itself by its intrinsic merit.

the Pounds can take care of you. 

You lose money because your system does not show you where every Penny comes from 
and where it goes. 

It does not tell you how much you should have !— you take what you find— and 
guess whether it is all your profit. 

A National Cash Register will take care of every penny you take in, and give 
you a complete record of every transaction in your shop. 

It will pay you to investigate this system at once, and see what it will do

IN FULL SWING. 

The importance of publicity in the recognised business 
reference-book for the drug-trade the world over is well 
recognised by astute advertisers. That is why firms who 
have chemists' goods to sell are already making sure of 
advertising space in 

The Chemists' and Druggists' Diary, 1913. 

The first consignment of Diaries for 1913 must be on the 
high seas early in November in order that C. & D. sub- 
scribers in far-off countries may not be disappointed. The 
Publisher makes it a rule to keep faith with them, so that 
their Diaries may be delivered by January 1. Intending 
advertisers can help by sending their requirements at once 
to The Publisher, The Chemist and Druggist, 42 Cannon 
Street, London, E.C. 



SUMMARY OF THIS ISSUE. 

The more notable items only are dealt with. 



National Health Insurance. 

We publish the medical benefit regulations as approved 
(p. 39). 

Five systems of paying doctors are given, and are printed 
on pp. 40-41. 

Provision of drugs is one of the things to be paid first 
out of the pool before the doctors' remuneration is deter- 
mined (p. 40). 

The conditions of agreement for supply of drugs and 
appliances by chemists are printed in extenso, beginning 
p. 41. 

A list of appliances which chemists must keep in stock is 
given on p. 42, where also the terms of the notice for 
hanging in the shop are printed, as well as a special 
official notice to chemists. 

Fees and prices are not yet fixed. See the Editorial 
on p. 56. 

The Chancellor of the Exchequer has had an interview 
with doctors on that subject (p. 42). 

So far the regulations are satisfactory to chemists, as 
they reserve all but urgent dispensing to them. A chemist 
who has had a bad dream to the contrary expresses himself 
in pictures and rhyme on p. 43. 

Articles and Communications. 

For interesting notes on two kinds of buchu see p. 54. 
Some useful observations on baldness are printed on 
p. 37. 

We print more letters about chemists' assistants and 
drug-stores (p. 71). 

" Xrayser II." questions if chemists know how to spend 
their holidays (p. 55). 

The Patent Medicine Inquiry will be resumed in a few 
days. We give some advance information about new 
evidence (p. 57). 

Heer Abrahamson, of Java, has issued a second pamphlet 
giving the results of a further study of quinine production, 
which is dealt with editorially (p. 58). 

Mr. John C. Umney gives on p. 70 a selection from his 
published statements regarding the use of alkaline sulphite 
and bisulphite in essential-oil analysis. 

Mr. J. Rymer Young gave the School of Pharmacy 
inaugural address on Wednesday. It was one of the briefest 
on record, but pithy, practical, pungent occasionally, 
illumined with humour, which was sometimes sardonic, and 
always pertinent to the subject — Objects and Limitations 
of Education. The address is printed on pp. 59-61, with 
a portrait of the orator. 

News ol the Week. 



The Customs Authorities of India have made new regula- 
tions regarding spirit-testing (p. 38). 

Several interesting points in trade-law are reported, 
including liability for empties (p. 44). 

The names of those who have passed the Minor examina- 
tion in London this month are on p. 53. 

Mr. J. H. Haywood, the well-known Nottingham manu- 
facturer of elastic hosiery, died last week (p. 46). 

New rates of duties for medicines, toilet specialities, and 
other chemists' goods have been fixed by the Argentine 
Republic (p. 38). 

The feature of the monthly Council-meeting of the Phar- 
maceutical Society of Great Britain was a protest by Mr. 
Sargeant against a proposal that the Council should, if 
asked, supply the Insurance Commissioners with a list 
of persons and corporations who would supply to insured 
persons drugs and medical appliances. He contended that 
the list should be supplied by the Standing Committee on In- 
surance, which body he characterised as " an unholy 
alliance " (p. 49). 

Tarde and Market Matters, 



The tax on the collection of buchu has been increased 
from Is. 6c7. to 2s. 6fZ. per lb. 

Santonin, Matto Grosso ipecacuanha, clove and sandal- 
wood- oils, and arsenic are dearer. Morphine, orange oil, 
glucose, vanilla, quicksilver (seconds), and Japanese ginger 
are cheaper. At the drug-auctions to-day a feature was the 
offering of 1,300 bales Tinnevelly senna (p. 66).

Brevities. 

Messrs. Bradley & Bliss, Ltd., wholesale chemists, 
Reading, are about to engage in the manufacture of 
methylated spirit. 

The Rugby Urban District Council have passed plans 
for considerable alterations and additions to the High 
Street premises of Boots, Ltd. 

The entries for the November examination of the 
Spectacle-makers' Company number eighty-three, making a 
total for the year of 184, as compared with 101, 135, and 
138 candidates for the three previous years. 

The West Indian Produce Association, Ltd., 14 Cree- 
church Lane, London, E.C., have been awarded a gold 
medal at the Latin-British Exhibition, Shepherd's Bush, 
for their exhibits of West Indian produce. 

Messrs. George Pattrick, chemists, Consett, were ordered 
to pay the costs of the prosecution for a breach of the 
Pistols Act, 1903. Defendants sold an alarm-pistol which 
discharged corks, and the Magistrates decided that the 
instrument was a pistol within the meaning of the Pistols 
Act. 

Mr. H. C. Bedding, manager of an open surgery in 
Great Russell Street, London, W.C., has figured pro- 
minently in the pictorial Press as the chemists' assistant 
who materially aided in securing an Armenian tailor, 
named Stephen Titus, who is charged with shooting five 
persons at the Horseshoe Hotel, Tottenham Court Road, 
one of them fatally. 

The premises of Boots, Cash Chemists, Ltd., Moorfields, 
London, E.C., were injured by a motor-car on Sunday 
evening, September 29. At 6.30 the car ran into the 
window, cracked the glass, and made two holes in it, but 
did little other damage as the blinds were down. The 
roller-shutters were down on Monday, and the following 
intimation, written with blue pencil on a piece of wrapping- 
paper, was pasted thereon : 

Business as Usual. 

Window broken by a gentleman in a hurry for a bottle 
of our " Carlsbad Pdr.," and could not wait till we opened. 

Boots' "Carlsbad Pdr.," Is. 6d. Makes you feel well. 

Store-prices. 

Two pages are allotted to the drug department of the 
Civil Service Supply Association, Ltd., in the member 
circular for October. One of these is devoted to C.S.S.A. 
eau de cologne in bottles at 9r/., Is. 4c?., and 2s. 9(/. 
Elastic hosiery is also given prominence, the prices quoted 
being : Anklets, silk 4s., cotton 2s. 8c7. ; knee caps 4s. 3d. 
and 2s. 9d. ; leggings 4s. 6d. and 3s. ; stockings 6s. 10</. 
and 3s. lid. ; thigh-pieces 4s. lOcf. and 3s. 3cc. Additions 
to stock since last month are citronella oil (bottles 5c/. 
and 9c/.), John Knight's toilet-soap {2d. tablet, box of 
twelve assorted, Is. 10d.), and Wrigley's Spearmint pepsin 
chewing-gum (packet 2^d.). Prices advanced are Tid- 
man's sea-salt (box of twelve Id. packets lid.), and prices 
reduced, calumba-root (Is. Id. lb.), new season's chamo- 
mile-flowers (Is. 6d. lb.), tr. benz. simp, or tr. benz. co. 
(2-oz. bottle 8<7.), tr. ferri perchlor. (2-oz. bottle 6c/.), and 
tr. cinchon. (4-oz. bottle 10d.). 

Sunday Trading. 

At a meeting of the Hull Chamber of Trade on the 
question of Sunday trading, Mr. Chapman, chemist, said 
many chemists opened on a Sunday evening in Hull. 
Personally he did so for some time, but gave it up as 
the purchases were such as could generally have been made 
on the Saturday. At the last meeting of the local 
Chemists' Association it had been agreed to devote the 
whole of the next meeting to Sunday trading with a 
view to taking united action in the matter. 

Birmingham Notes. 

The recreation section of the retail drug-trade is dis- 
cussing how the winter Wednesday afternoons are to be 
utilised. Some members suggest football, and for the less 
energetic the use of the covered courts in Suffolk Street. 



Alderman Clayton, Ph.C, has just returned from a 
sojourn in North America. His impression of the street 
traffic in New York is that the speed of the motor-driven 
conveyance is terrific. Toronto and Montreal have grown 
enormously, he finds. 

The City Analyst (Mr. J. F. Liverseege, Ph.C.) read a 
paper on "Adulteration in Birmingham" before a large 
audience at the Birmingham and Midland Institute's 
Scientific Society last week. There was a good sprinkling 
of pharmacists, who were there by invitation of the 
lecturer. His department of the public weal has been 
busy among Galen's followers during the past few weeks. 

A new system of hoarding advertising is being started 
in Birmingham, opposite Easy Row, where the Old Wharf 
facade was. Magnificent posters have been pasted up, 
and they are lighted up at night by a long series of elec- 
tric lights. An effective advertisement showing a patient 
in bed has been curiously mutilated on the face-part of the 
picture. Several attempts have been made by an artist 
to remedy the defect, but at present with poor results. 

Sale of Food and Drugs Acts. 

The Camberwell analyst (Dr. F. L. Teed) in his annual 
report states that during nine months of the year no 
drugs were submitted for analysis, but in the course of 
the last quarter twenty-five samples, representing three 
pharmacopoeical drugs and three prescriptions, were ex- 
amined ; of these four were not up to standard. The 
deficient samples were sweet nitre (2), camphorated oil (1), 
and ammoniated tincture of quinine (1). There are 800 
drugs in the Pharmacopoeia, Dr. Teed remarks, and how 
an efficient check is to be kept on these by submitting 
three, and those three in one quarter of the year, is diffi- 
cult to imagine or understand. Dr. Teed contends that the 
unsatisfactory administration of the Sale of Food and Drugs 
Acts is due to neglect by the Local Government Board and 
the Board of Agriculture of their statutory duties. 

Chemist's Assistant's Vote. 

At the Kingston-on-Thames Revising Barrister's Court 
on September 27, Mr. Alexander Beveridge, chemist's 
assistant, .residing over Mr. Lowe's shop, claimed a vote 
on the old lodgers' list. Objection was raised on the 
grounds that Mr. Lowe's business was now held by a 
limited liability company, and that the claimant did not 
state whether he was sole or joint occupier. The 
assistant overseer said that if Mr. Beveridge ceased to 
be employed at the shop he would have to vacate the 
room. The road had recently been re-numbered, and 
the old number appeared on the list. Later on the 
manager of the company wrote that there was a house- 
keeper to look after the lodgers. The opposer said that 
these "lodgers" ought to be entered as service men, as 
many of the lodger claims were bogus. In the end the 
name was allowed to stand. 

From Various Courts. 

At the West London Police Court on September 23, 
Alfred John Baldock, described as a chemist, was bound 
over in the sum of 101. for threatening his wife with a 
revolver. 

At Hastings County Petty Sessions on September 28, 
Arthur William Plummer, chemist's assistant, was 
charged on remand with embezzling the moneys of his 
employer, Mr. George Stanley Perrett, chemist and opti- 
cian, 25 Devonshire Road, Bexhill. There were six charges 
in all, the sums ranging from 8s. 3d. to 11. 5s. 9c/. It was 
explained that prosecutor, who had been in poor health 
for some years, had left the management of the chemist's 
portion of his business to accused. The charges brought 
against the latter were of two kinds : (1) of stealing sums 
of money, which were clearly indicated in the books used 
in the business ; and (2) of stealing other sums of money 
which, owing to the methods used, were not capable of 
identification, and the amounts of which could not be 
ascertained. It was impossible to state at present the 
total amount of the defalcations. Mr. G. S. Perrett, 
who on account of the state of his health was 
allowed to be seated, in his evidence stated that 
as regards the first three charges the amount in each 
case of the sales takings and of the sums received for 



Index Folio 528

customers' accounts was correctly entered, but the totals 
were wrong. He had accepted the prisoner's figures 
without checking them. The accused had not paid over 
three sums, which represented the deficiencies on the 
dates named. — The Court decided to hold a special sitting 
at Bexhill to hear other charges. When the question of 
bail was raised it was mentioned that accused while on 
remand had removed his furniture to London. In reply 
it was stated that the removal had been arranged before 
the proceedings were instituted. Eventually the Bench 
fixed bail at 2bl., and with two other sureties of 251., or 
one in 50/.

On Friday, September 27, Dr. Beddie and Mr. John H 
Low, chemist, Fraserburgh, were entertained to a join 
complimentary dinner in the Royal Hotel. The hosts were 
the local lodge of Free Gardeners and the local lodge of 
Ancient Shepherds. The purpose of the function was to

The quarterly examinations commenced on Thursday. 

The city has been extensively circularised and sampled 
by patent-medicine proprietors of late, and an amateur 
analyst (writing to an evening paper) states that he has 
made " most useful ink " from a supply of pills he received 
recently. He adds that he intends sending a testimonial 
to the manufacturers. 

Those in charge of pharmaceutical interests in con- 
nection with the Insurance Act in Edinburgh have been 
lately engaged in consultation with the Scottish Com- 
missions. Chemists consider that the regulations which 
are proposed are fairly satisfactory. The difficulty is the 
question ot remuneration, and on this point it is felt that 
the Insurance scheme is not going to prove a gold mine.

Mr. C. E. Hill, Ph. C. Amirs' Medical Hall, Graigue, 
co. Kilkenny, has disposed of his business to Mr. J. B. 
Faichney, Ph.C, late of Seymour & Co., Ennis. 

The Drogheda Guardians have resolved to supply each 
dispensary in their district with a medicine-chest so that 
drugs can be kept under lock and key. " It was not in 
the interests of the poor," said one of the Guardians, 
" that poisonous stuff should be left lying on the table." 

The Rev. William Nicholas, M.A., D.D., a leading

The Veterinary Anaesthetics Bill. 

At the meeting of the South Tipperary County Council 
on September 25, the Chairman referred to the V eterinary 
Anaesthetics Bill, a private Bill which is to come before 
Parliament. A resolution asking the Irish members of 
Parliament to oppose the Bill was carried, and Alderman 
Condon, M.P., who was present, said the Council might 
rest assured that the resolution would receive prompt 
attention as soon as they returned to Parliament. Mr. 
Cullinan and he and other members would take steps to 
secure that the Bill would not go beyond the first reading.

FRENCH NEWS. 

(From the " C. & D." Paris Correspondent* 



Testing Laboratory. — The South-Eastern Federation 
of Pharmaceutical Societies have passed a resolution re- 
commending the establishment of a Federal Laboratory 
for the testing of medicaments, etc. Local laboratories 
of this kind already exist in Nice and other towns. A 
committee composed of MM. Badel, Chevalier, and 
Reveillet was appointed to study the subject and draw 
up a report to be presented at the December general 
meeting. 

Over the Walnuts and the Wine. — M. Mathurin, in 
his annual report on the work of the French Wholesale 
Druggists' Association, dwelt on various suggestions he 
had received for increasing the efficiency of the body. 
Certain friends (whose robust health and efficient diges- 
tion he envied) had proposed that the monthly com- 
mittee meeting should be preceded or followed by a 
friendly banquet. One "breaks the ice," wrote the 
correspondent, " between the soup and the roast, and 
one becomes fast friends by the time cheese and fruit 
make their appearance." He wished to remind his col- 
leagues that this happy notion was already, though un- 
officially, carried out. As a matter of fact, a little 
monthly gathering takes place in the palatial refreshment 
room of the P.L.M. railway station. As many as fifty 
were present at a recent gathering, including Professor 
Perrot, of the Paris Superior School of Pharmacy, and 
M. Roux, head of the anti-adulteration service, who, 
when speech-time came round, made the interesting 
statement that a circular would be issued to pharmacy 
inspectors with a view to bringing their zeal within 
legitimate and harmless channels, a promise since kept. 

Apropos of Baldness.— Dr. Helme discourses in the 
medical feuilleton of the "Temps" on the question of 
baldness, with more especial reference to Dr. BuUiard's 
recent " Doctrinal and Practical Essay on Depilation." 
He points out two principal causes of baldness— (1) the 
physical cause, which is the heavy and close-fitting hat, 
and (2) headwork and worry. Even women, since the 
days of false hair and dyes, blue stockings, and Girton 
degrees, are now (if we may believe M. Brocq, the der- 
matologist of the Hospital St. Louis) showing signs of 
becoming a prey to a physical infirmity formerly practic- 
ally confined to the sterner sex. Dr. Bulliard, in his 



Index Folio 529 



38 



THE CHEMIST AND DRUGGIST 



October 5, 1912 



recent thesis, simply upholds and develops the theory of 
Dr. Lucien Jacquet, of the St. Antoine Hospital. He 
attributes baldness to irritation of nerve centres caused 
by indigestion, dyspepsia, enteritis, or any other "thorn 
in the flesh." To check the loss of hair, the doctor, he 
says, has but to find and cure the latent physical infirmity. 
"Let each," as old Ambroise Pare used to say, "be 
replaced in a proper line of living, and the forest, wither- 
ing yesterday, will again become green." Even the 
thyroid gland may be the cause of baldness. The cause of 
grey or white hair is still open to discussion. M. Metch- 
nikoff holds that the " pigmentophageous " cell "devours" 
the colour of the hair. This theory would explain the 
phenomenom of growing " white in a single night," which 
seems to have been scientifically proved in certain cases. 
As to "hair gymnastics," Dr. Helme recommends vigorous 
massage, morning and night, of the scalp, repeated and 
steady brushing of the locks, and a generally healthy life, 
with enlistment, when opportunity offers, in the " hatless 
brigade." If the hair is dry, use oil moderately; if moist, 
wash from time to time with a 1-per-cent. decoction of 
quillaia and dry carefully. As to dyes, those based on 
salts of lead are absolutely condemned, and those made 
with paraphenylenediamine should be avoided. Silver 
salts are less objectionable. He recommends vegetable 
dyes, such as fresh walnut- juice and strong tea, which 
are popular French dyes. He prefers henna poultices, 
followed by indigo-tree leaves, "a Persian product very 
difficult to purchase at shops." 



INDIA AND THE EAST. 

(From the "C. & E>." Correspondents.) 

Chinese Essential Oils.— The exports of essential oils, 
particularly star-anise and cassia oils, from all China 
showed a notable increase in 1911 over 1910, in spite of 
unfavourable conditions in China, the year's record in 
these products being substantially complete before the 
critical times of the closing months of the year came on. 
The exports of such oik from China to all countries 
amounted to 921,600 lb. in 1911, as compared with 
1,993,860 lb. in 1910. From two-thirds to three-fourths 
of this trade in all China is handled through Hong-Kong. 

Opium Prohibition in China.— Edicts prohibiting the 
cultivation of opium in China are again being issued, now 
that the revolution enables officials to devote their attention 
to such matters. The " North China Daily News " gives 
particulars of one just issued by the Shanghai Magistrate, 
prohibiting the transport, cultivation, and smoking of 
opium from the end of the current year. The proclama- 
tion urges the people to devote their land to better pur- 
poses, and threatens smokers and cultivators -with severe 
punishment if they indulge in their old habits after the 
end of December 1912. 

Cocaine Smuggling. — Some large hauls of cocaine 
have lately been made by the Customs Preventive Service 
at Bombay, including one of 40 lb. in weight and valued 
at Rs. 25,600. In this instance the accused, a steward 
of the s.s. Habsburg, was sentenced to six months' 
rigorous imprisonment and a fine of Rs. 1,000 or six 
weeks more. Another steward of the same vessel, who 
endeavoured to smuggle 5 lb. of the drug, got five 
months' rigorous imprisonment and a fine of Rs. 200 
or one month more. He had the cocaine carefully 
wrapped round his waist, arms, thighs, and calves. He 
had oiled paper next to his skin, with the cocaine packets 
placed over this and bound with cotton rags. He said 
he received the cocaine from a man in Trieste. The 
smuggling appears to be carried on through the medium 
of Continental steamers exclusively. 

Testing of Spirits.— The Government of India have 
issued detailed instructions for testing spirits in Custom 
Houses. Drugs, medicines, and chemicals containing 
spirit are assessable on the actual strength as ascertained 
in the laboratory, subject to a minimum of 5 per cent. 
ad valorem. Sweetened spirits, cordials, bitters, and 
toilet-preparations containing spirit are assessable on the 
liquid gallonage if not entered for test, and on the 



ascertained true strength if entered as to be tested, 
subject to a minimum of 5 per cent, ad valorem. Spirit 
that has been effectually and permanently rendered unfit 
for human consumption, liqueurs, and perfumed spirits 
is assessable on liquid gallonage. Rectified spirit of wine 
and other high-strength silent spirits are assessable on 
their strength as indicated by Sykes' hydrometer, but 
may be tested for obscuration at option of the collector. 



" Patents " in the Argentine. 

£N our issue for July 13 (index folio 40) we reported 
on the regulations made by the Board of Health 
regarding the sale in the Republic of pharmaceutical 
products and mineral waters. Since then the National 
Senate has passed a financial measure imposing a new 
scale of duties on imported medicines and toilet 
specialities. The duties which are of interest to exporters 
from this country are as follows : 

1. On essences, extracts, lotions, and generally every kind 
of perfumes in bottles, pots, or jars, powders, pomades, 
pastilles, cosmetics, tinctures, soaps, in whatever form, and 
every article for toilet or hygienic use, whatever its country 
of origin, will pay on the following scales: 



Those sold up to $1 inclusive 5c. 

Above $1 and up to $2 inclusive ... ... ... 12c. 

Above $2 and up to $3 inclusive 21c. 

Above $3 and up to $4 inclusive ... ... ... 32c. 

Above $4 and up to $5 inclusive 45c. 



Above $5 at the rate of 15c. for every dollar of legal 
national currency. 

2. Medicinal specialities will pay on every bottle, tube, 
jar, box, envelope, or any other enclosure : 

Those sold up to 41c. inclusive lc. 

Above 41c. and up to $2 inclusive ... ... 5c. 

Above $2 inclusive 10c. 

3. Medicinal specialities and all toilet articles in general 
which may already bear the duty-stamp, and which it may 
be wished to be sold at a higher price, shall pay the new 
duty which corresponds to them in additional stamps in 
accordance with the sale-price established in the foregoing 
scale. 

4. Natural mineral waters will pay 5c. per bottle and 
artificial mineral waters will pay 10c. per bottle. 

5. Veterinary specialities will pay for each pack- 

age up to 100 kilos. 5c. 

For each package of more than 100 kilos. ... 10c. 

6. These duties will be charged on each bottle, jar, box, 
tube, envelope, packet, or any other retail sale unit. 

7. Any article whatever of those involved in this law which 
may be found in the territory of the Argentine Republic 
after 120 days following the promulgation of this Act with- 
out the corresponding stamp or fiscal band will be considered 
as fraudulent. 

8. The receiving of the duties put in force by the present 
Act will be under the charge of the Department of Internal 
Duties. 

9. In everything that regards inspection and fiscal regula- 
tions on articles referred to in this Act, the regulations 
under No. 3764 will be applicable. 

10. Exceptions to the duties referred to in Articles 1 and 2 
of the present Act are those soaps whose sale-price to the 
public shall be less than 41c. each in national currency. 

A correspondent, referring to the new duties, states 
that " the retail trade in the Argentine intend to charge 
interest on the capital locked up in stamps, which means 
that an article now priced at $2 m/n, bearing a stamp 
valued at 5 centavos, and sold at $2.05, will in future have 
to bear a stamp of 10 centavos, and may be sold in one 
pharmacy at $2.10 and in another at $2.15 or $2.20. 
Manufacturers will probably find it expedient now to fix a 
retail price, inclusive of stamp-duty." 

South-Westekn Polytechnic Institute. — The new pro- 
spectus of the South-West-ern Polytechnic Institute, Manresa 
Road, Chelsea, S.W., which has been issued this week, 
contains particulars of an evening course in the various 
subjects for the Pharmaceutical examinations. The classes 
in oharmacy, dispensing, and materia medica are on Mon- 
days, Mr. H. B. Stevens, Ph.C, A.I.C.. being the instructor. 
Pharmaceutical chemistry (lecturer, Mr. J. B. Coleman, 
A.R.C.Se.) is on Tuesday, and botany can be taken on 
either Wednesday or Thursday, the teacher in the last-named 
subject being Mr. H. J. Jeffery, late lecturer at the School 
of Pharmacy of the Pharmaceutical Society.

In a.n introductory note the Committee certify that the 
regulations should come into force immediately, and acting 
jointly with the Scottish Insurance Commissioners declare 
the Regulations to come into force forthwith. We print the 
text of Part III. in full as being of direct and immediate 
interest to the retail drug-trade, and make extracts from 
the rest of the regulations which may be of service. The 
interpretations follow the lines of the Act and include 
the following : 

" Committee " means the Insurance Committee for any 
County or County Borough. 

" Society " means an Approved Society. 

" Member " means a member of a Society who is an 
insured person under the Act entitled to medical benefit. 

" Insured Person " means an insured person under the 
Act entitled to medical benefit. 

"Practitioner" means a duly qualified medical practi- 
tioner, and, where the Regulations refer to a practitioner 
attending an insured person, includes a practitioner attend- 
ing the insured person in lieu of the practitioner in accord- 
ance with the terms of his agreement with the Committee. 

"Chemist" means any person, firm, or body corporate, 
entitled to carry on the business of a chemist or druggist 
under the provisions of the Pharmacy Act, 1868, as amended 
by the Poisons and Pharmacy Act, 1908. 

"Treatment" means medical attendance and treatment 
of insured persons. 

" Drugs " includes medicines. 

"Institution" means a system or institution existing on 
December 16, 1911, and providing medical attendance and 
treatment. 

Regulations for Doctors. 

The conditions of service of practitioners are to be made 
by the Committees after consulting Local Medical Com- 
mittees, and the Commissioners are to be advised of what 
arrangement is come to, submitting particulars to the 
Commissioners, showing separately the amounts proposed 
to be paid in respect of the cost of medical benefit and the 
administration thereof. The Committee have also to 
furnish the Commissioners with a statement of the 
income limit, if any, proposed to be fixed by the Com- 
mittee. The Commissioners before approving are to con- 
sider any representations made by Local Medical Com- 
mittees. Regulation 13 provides that in cases where an 
income limit is fixed the Committees may require persons 
whose income exceeds that limit to make their own ar- 
rangements for receiving treatment (including medicines 
and appliances), and such persons shall not receive medical 
benefit under the arrangements made by the Committees. 
The fourth clause of this Regulation is as follows : 

Any Society or Association of deposit contributors, having 
members resident in the County, or the Local Medical Cbm- 
mittee,_ or, where no Local Medical Committee exists, any 
practitioner on the panel, or any chemist or other person, 
firm, or body corporate undertaking the supply of drugs 
or appliances under these Regulations may at any time, by 
notice in writing to the Committee, dispute the right of any 
insured person to receive medical benefit under the arrange- 
ments made by the Committee, on the ground that the 
income of that person exceeds the income limit and that 
he is not entitled to be exempted. 

If the Committee is satisfied it will require the person 
to make his own arrangements. Regulation 14 enables the 
Commit bee to allow any person to make his own arrange- 
ments, and 15 provides for payment to all persons who 
make their own arrangements as follows : 

There shall be paid to every insured person required or 
allowed to make his own arrangements by way of contribu- 
tion to the cost of his treatment (including medicines and 
appliances) — ■ 

(a) in the case of a person who has contracted to obtain 
treatment (including medicines and appliances) for the 
year, a sum equal to the amount contracted to be paid 



/ ndex Folio 531

THE CHEMIST AND DEUGGIST 



Octobee 5, 1912 



by him for that treatment, or, where that amount exceeds 
the sum available in respect of his medical benefit for the 
year, the amount so available ; and 

(6) in the case of any other such person, a sum bearing 
the same proportion to the expense, if any, incun-ed by 
him in obtaining treatment (including medicines and ap- 
pliances), calculated in accordance with a scale of fees 
fixed by the Committee, as the aggregate amount available 
for the medical benefit for the year of all such other per- 
sons bears to the sums expended by them in obtaining 
treatment (including medicines and appliances), but in 
no case exceeding the expense so incurred by him. 

There is nothing more in the Regulations about medi- 
cines, drugs, and medical and surgical appliances in the 
other Regulations up to 28, all being concerned with the 
relations with practitioners : we append 28 in full. It is 
entitled 

Amount Applicable fok Payment of Practitioners. 

(1) For the purpose of determining the amount of remuner- 
ation payable to each practitioner on the panel, the Com- 
mittee shall, at the end of each year, determine the total 
amount to be applied in defraying the cost of the medical 
benefit of insured persons obtaining treatment from practi- 
tioners on the panel, and shall deduct from that amount the 
amounts payable in respect of (a) the provision of drugs and 
prescribed appliances ; (6) mileage ; and (c) the cost of the 
medical benefit during periods of temporary residence out- 
side the County of insured persons usually resident in the 
County and entitled to obtain treatment from a practitioner 
on the panel. 

(2) There shall be paid to each practitioner on the panel 
out of the sum remaining after making the deductions afore- 
said (in these Regulations referred to as the "net fund") 
an amount calculated in accordance with the method of 
remuneration adopted by the Committee. 

The first schedule to the Regulations deals in Part 1. 
with the conditions of service for practitioners, the fifth 
of which is — 

The practitioner shall order in the form provided by the 
Committee for the purpose such drugs and prescribed ap- 
pliances as are requisite for the treatment of any patient 
other than those which the practitioner may be under 
arrangement himself to supply : Provided that if the prac- 
titioner orders any drug not included in the list from time 
to time supplied by the Committee to the practitioner or 
orders any drug for a person not usually resident in the 
County, he shall give such orders on special forms for those 
purposes provided by the Committee.

These being of the greatest importance to our sub- 
scribers, we print them without abbreviation or alteration. 

Prescribed Appliances. — 32. The medical and surgical 
appliances to be provided as part of medical benefit shall 
be the appliances mentioned in the Second Schedule to these 
Regulations. 

Prices of Drugs and Appliances. — 33. (1) With a view to

mine the conditions upon which it is proposed to invite 
chemists and other persons, firms, or bodies corporate (all 
of whom are in these Regulations included in the expression 
"chemists or other persons") to undertake the supply of 
drugs or appliances or both. 

(2) The Committee shall embody particulars of those prices 
and conditions in draft agreements which shall include the 
terms and conditions specified in the Third Schedule to these 
Regulations, with the necessary modifications in the case of 
a person undertaking to supply drugs or appliances only, 
or not entitled to dispense medicines, and with such other 
modifications as the Committee may, subject to the approval 
of the Commissioners, think fit. 

Conditions of Dispensing Medicines. — 34. The Committee 
shall determine the form and manner in which notice is 
to be given to chemists and other persons desiring to supply 
drugs or appliances or both, and the form in which any 
such chemist or other person may intimate his acceptance 
of those terms and conditions, but that notice shall state 
that no person shall be entitled to dispense medicines for 
insured persons under the arrangements made with chemists 
and other persons by the Committee other than a chemist 
who undertakes that all medicines supplied by him to 
insured persons under the arrangements made by the Com- 
mittee shall be dispensed either by or under the direct 
supervision of a registered pharmacist or by a person who, 
for three years immediately prior to December 16, 1911, has 
acted as a dispenser to a practitioner or a public institution.

Appliances. — 35. (1) The Committee may make arrange- 
ments for the supply by practitioners on the panel of all 
or any of the following : (a) drugs which are necessarily or 
ordinarily administered by a practitioner in person ; and 
(6) drugs and appliances required for immediate adminis- 
tration or application, or required for use before a supply 
can conveniently be obtained otherwise under these Regu- 
lations. 



(2) Where the Committee are satisfied that an insured 
person by reason of distance or inadequacy of means of 
communication will have difficulty in obtaining any neces- 
sary drugs or appliances from a chemist or other person 
on the list the Committee shall make arrangements for 
the supply to such person by the practitioner attending him 
of such drugs or appliances as would otherwise under these 
Regulations have been supplied by a chemist or other 
person on the list. 

Submission of Arrangements. — 36. (1) The Committee 
shall as soon as may be submit for the approval of the Com-

made by the Committee for the supply by practitioners on 
the panel of drugs and appliances.

in the list first to be issued. 

List of Persons Undertaking Supply. — 38. (1) After the 
expiration of the period specified in the notice the Com-

NATIONAL INSURANCE ACT. 
(Name of Person, or Firm contracting.) 

Under contract with the Insurance Committee for the 

County [or County Borough] of 

To dispense medicines. 
To supply drugs. 

To supply drugs (except scheduled poisons). 
To supply appliances. 
[Note. — Strike out words not applicable.] 

There is nothing- in Part IV. directly affecting chemists, 
except that the Committees are every year to determine 
the sum to be expended in defraying the cost of medical 
benefit for insured persons residing temporarily outside 
their own areas. 



Special Notice. 

Every pharmacist, before replying to any communication 
from Insurance Committees relating to the supply of drugs, 
medicines, and appliances, is urgently requested to com- 
municate with the Local Associations Officer, 17 Blooms- 
bury Square, London, W.C. 

The Chancellor and the Doctors. 

The following official statement was issued on Wednes- 
day evening, October 2 : 

The Chancellor of the Exchequer received to-day at the 
Treasury Sir Clifford Allbutt and the seventeen other medi- 
cal members of the Advisory Committees appointed under 
the National Insurance Act, who desired to place before 
him certain considerations affecting the question of medical 
remuneration under the Act, and the possibility, which was 
understood to be receiving the attention of the Government, 
of the funds available for this purpose under the Act being 
supplemented by a further Parliamentary grant. 

The deputation expressed their appreciation of the national 
importance of the medical service which must be developed 
in connection with the Insurance Act, and submitted to 
the Chancellor several points which appeared to them to 
justify, in the public interest, additional financial provision 
being made. 

The Chancellor indicated that the considerations brought 
by the deputation under his notice would receive the most 
careful attention of the Government, and expressed his sense 
of the great public service which had been rendered by 
the medical members of the Advisory Committees in con- 
tinuing their work upon the subject and advising him upon 
it at the present juncture. He further stated that he would 
confer with his colleagues in the Cabinet at the earliest 
possible date, and hoped to be in a position to make known 
their decision on the matter in the course of the week begin- 
ning October 14. 

The Chancellor is to receive on Friday next, the 4th inst., 
those members of the Advisory Committees who represent 
insured persons to hear their views on the subject. 

Are Residents in Hospitals "Employed"? 
Application having been made to the Insurance Com- 
missioners for the determination, under Section 66, of the 
question whether resident medical officers or other qualified 
resident officials at a hospital are employed by the hospital 
authorities under a contract of service within the mean- 
ing of the National Insurance Act, the Commissioners give 
notice that a hearing of parties interested will take place 
at the Civil Service Commission, Burlington Gardens, 
London, W., on Tuesday, October 22, at 2.30 p.m. Any 
persons interested, who desire to be heard before the de- 
cision is given, should give not less than three days' notice 
to the Insurance Commissioners of their intention to attend 
or be represented at the hearing. Statements in writing 
made by persons affected will be considered if submitted 
not later than October 21. 

Exemption of Apprentices. 
Mr. Thomas Guthrie, President of the Chemists' 
Friendly Society, writing in regard to the Commissioners' 
memorandum on this subject (0. & B., September 28, index 
folio 498), calls attention to some undesirable consequences 
of exercising their right to exemption, and adds : 

As noted in the communication to which inference has 
been made, an apprentice to whom the Act applies may 



Index Folio 534 



Octobeb 5, 1912 



THE CHEMIST AND DRUGGIST 



43 



claim a' certificate of exemption under Section 2 if he can 
prove that he is either 

(a) In receipt of an income of 2.61. per year or upwards, 
not dependent upon his personal exertions ; or 

(b) Ordinarily and mainly dependent for his livelihood 
upon some other person. 

The guardian and" employer of the apprentice who thinks 
of securing exemption under (6) will do well to remember 

(1) that exemption holds during apprenticeship only; 

(2) that in any case the employer is obliged to contribute his 
portion of insurance premium ; (3) that the contribution by 
the employer avails nothing in the way of benefits to the 
apprentice ; and (4) since on completion of term of appren- 
ticeship the assistant must, if employed, come into insurance, 
he will require, if that date be later than July 1913, either 
to pay an increased premium or a lump sum sufficient to 
secure him sickness benefit at full rate, or to accept reduced 
benefits unless he can prove that his time since he attained 
seventeen years of age has been spent in indentured appren- 
ticeship or under instruction without wages. The Section 
of the Act bearing on this is 9 (4), and I suggest that it be 
studied by those concerned before coming to a resolution. 

Notes. 

Councillors Milner Black and E. G. Yates are the two 
pharmacist representatives on the Sub-Committee of nine 
chosen by the Brighton Insurance Committee to deal with 
medical benefit. 

The Cardiganshire County Insurance Committee at the 
meeting held at Lampeter on September 20, took no action 
in respect to requests from the Pharmaceutical Standing- 
Committee on Insurance that more pharmacists should be 
placed on the Sub-Committee to be appointed to consider 
the medical benefit scheme. 



The Ballad of the Blasted Hope. 

A Chemist's Dreadful Dream. 

Once the Chemist had a grievance which upon him sorely 
pressed, 

When a circumstance arose which made him think he'd be 
redress'd. 

For a clever Scheme was fathered by a Man from gallant 
Wales 

That would give him back " Dispensing " and increase his 
sundry sales. 

Now " Dispensing " 
was his own by 
right ; for many 
years he'd fought 
To keep the Sacred 
Privilege that by 
blood and brain 
he'd bought ; 
But it, too, was 
wrested from him 
by the Doctor down 
the way, 
And our friend took 
to prescribing just 
to make the busi- 
ness pay. 
So the Chemist liked 
the Welshman's 
plan (although it 
must be said 

There were other things this Welshman did he'd rather do 
instead) ; 

Thus his heart was filled with thankfulness, his visage all 
aglow — ■ 

For the Act would crush for ever the dispensing Medico. 

And " Xrayser " for the Chemist prophesied a brighter day, 
Though " Jay Mack " (the mercenary) hinted it would never 

P a y; 

But the Chemist and the Doctor, when you spoke to them 
apart, 

Each declared they only had the public interest at heart. 

Then the Doctor met and told the man from gallant little 
Wales, 

" Unless you have my valued help your legislation fails ; 
On my support your cherished Scheme will surely stand or 
fall, 

And / must have Dispensing, or I won't help you at all." 




" This Act would crash for ever 
the dispensing Medico." 



The Welshman shrugged his shoulders, softly whispered 

" Wait and see ! 
When the Act's in operation you will get' a good fat fee " : 
But the Doctor rose in anger, and he said " That's not 

enough ; 

If you don't give me Dispensing I will cut up jolly rough." 

The Doctor firmly stood his ground, concessions came his 
way, 

Till the Chemist dimly wondered whether what was left 
would pay ; 

But he hugged the consolation " Although it may be found 
He isn't crushed quite utterly, at least he's firmly bound." 




" At least he's firmly bound." 

The Chemist loved his cherished Hope and nurtured it with 
care, 

It brightened up the Present, made the Future seem so fair ; 
But, in spite of careful nursing, It grew weaker day by day, 
Till it looked just like a " skellington," I've heard the people 
say. 

The more the Doctor did for It, the worse the infant grew, 
The precious Hope was going fast, sad, sad, but very true ; 
And I do not like to say it, tho' perhaps you ought to 
know, 

But this took his thoughts completely from Pro bono publico. 





The Chemist loved his cherished 
Hope." 



" He went clean off his dot." 



One grey morning when the Chemist woke he found he'd lost 
his Hope, 

So with trembling hands he disinterred his dusty microscope, 
But tho' he used his strongest lens he could not find a trace 
Of that which mad© him feel himself the favoured of the 
race. 

With frenzied haste he hurried out to find what had 
occurred ; 

The thought that he'd been " left " again seemed really too 
absurd ; 

But the horrid truth broke slowly, and he went clean off his 

dot, 

For the Chemist had indeed been dished— the Doctor took 
the lot. 

# * 

The bell rang loud, insistent, shrill ; the dreamer started up, 
" Oh ! what a horrid dream,'' he cried. " That was a bitter 
cup 

T felt that I would have to quaff; but now it seems all fair — 
We'll get our own, and so will Doc. We are a lucky pair ! "

LEGAL REPORTS. 



TRADE LAW. 

Law of Returned Empties.— At the Manchester County 
Court' on September 30, Judge Mellor, K.C., gave his 
decision in the case of J. M. Beckett & Son, Ltd., v. William 
Richardson, which was an action for the return of a number 
of chemical carboys. Dr. Atkinson, for the plaintiffs, said 
the point at issue was whether the contract between the 
parties had been varied by certain correspondence. The 
plaintiffs supplied chemicals in the carboys, and on each of 
their delivery-notes appeared the words " Carboys not 
returned charged to account." The defendant had taken 
up the position that he was not responsible for empties, 
because when some empties were charged for he wrote 
saying he would net be held responsible for them. Mr. 
Wragge, for the defence, said that as far back as 1907 the 
defendant wrote disclaiming responsibility, and he con- 
tended that if the plaintiffs chose to still accept orders this 
disclaimer became a condition of the contract. His Honour 
held that' if he wished to repudiate responsibility the 
defendant should have expressly stipulated in each order 
that it was only sent subject to the terms of the disclaimer. 
He gave judgment for the plaintiffs for 8/. 5s., and costs. 

"Cincola." In the Shoreditch County Court on Septem- 
ber 30, before Judge Smyly, K.C., F. Hewthorn & Co., Ltd., 
of 70 Finsbury Pavement, E.C., sued Christopher F. Button, 
Swan Hot-el, Needham Market, to recover 21. lbs. bd. for 
'"Cincola " and other drugs supplied. The defendant 
admitted 18s. of the claim, but denied that he ever ordered 
the Cincola, which is quinine and cod-liver oil in 
tablet form for cattle. Defendant explained that the Cin- 
cola was supplied to a Mr. Williams, who, finding it of 
no use, threatened to put. it in the street if not removed 
immediately. In his dilemma the traveller went to the 
defendant and asked him to mind it, which he said he would 
It had lain at his place for twelve months, and was just 
the same as when it was delivered there. The plaintiffs' 
traveller said Mr. Williams from the start was dubious 
about using the stuff, not because he thought it was of 
bad quality, but because of the difficulty in getting the 
men to use it in the right way. He was quite sure the 
defendant gave an order for the Cincola. Judge Smyly 
said the plaintiffs had not made out their case, and there 
would be judgment for them for only the admitted amount- 
IBs. On the defendant's application he allowed the expenses 
of defendant and a witness of coming to town. ' 

A Chemist's Manager gets Compensation.— In the 
Shoreditch County Court on Serjtcmber 30, before Judge 
Smyly, K.C., Win. Edgar Fisher, 239 Wells Street, Hacknev, 
chemist's manager, sued Messrs. J. Morgan Davis & Son's, 
278 Bishopsgate, E.C., chemists, under the Workmen's Com- 
pensation Act for an award owing to two accidents. 
According to the applicant's statement of claim, he was 
working in one of the respondents' shops at 239 Wells 
Street. Hackney, on August 2, 1911, when his left thumb 
caught in a drawer. Part of the thumb was removed in con- 
sequence of the injury, and he cannot bend it now. Again, 
on November 28, applicant was opening a bottle and his 
right thumb was cut by the broken glass. Blood-poisoning 
supervened, and in consequence of that injury the thumb 
had become permanently useless. At the present time the 
use of the right hand and arm is only partially recovered, 
but it is hoped that this incapacity wiil be only temporary. 
He hoped to get some wages, but would have great difficulty 
owing to his incapacity, and he considered his possibilities 
were about 28s. a week, as against the 2s. 18s. a week he 
had been earning as manager. He had been receiving 1/. 
a week from August 2, 1911, to September 23, then 11. a 
week from November 18 to June 8, 1912, when the pay- 
ments stopped. When the case was called on it was stated 
the parties had come to an agreement, the terms being 
that the applicant received 75/., and 15/. would be paid 
by way of costs. His Honour agreed to this sum. 

Drainage from a Chemist's Shop.-In the Shoreditch 
County Court on September 30, before Judge Smyly, K.C., 
Thos. Ed. Jamain, 34 Pitlield Street. Hoxton, an eating- 
house keeper, and Mary Ann Augusta Glover, a married 
woman, 21 Marlborough Avenue, Reading, sued Mr. Thomas 
Edwards, chemist and druggist, trading as Wm. Godfrey, 
36 Pitfield Street, Hoxton, to recover 60/. damages for 
injury done to plaintiff's business. Mr. Cairns, barrister, 
appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. A. E. Robinson for 
the defence. Mr. Cairns explained that he alleged that 
the defendant caused to proceed down the rain-pipe certain 
noxious and vile-smelling chemicals, which ooured on and 



percolated into his premises. This not only did damage 
to the plaintiff's shop, but drove away most of his customers, 
as they could not stand the vile smells while they were 
eating. He understood there was a counterclaim for 71. Is., 
the position being that both parties alleged that the other 
was the cause of damage to their respective premises. So 
far as could be ascertained, the noxious chemical was 
carbon bisulphide, and he had a chemist in court who would 
give evidence as to its properties and powerful odour. The 
plaintiff was called and bore out his counsel's statement. 
Witness was cross-examined at some length by Mr. Robin- 
son, and it transpired that there is a cess-box on plaintiff's 
premises, and the defendant has the right to run his waste 
away down that pipe, so that it was for the plaintiff (his 
Honour remarked) to see that it was clear, and if he 
failed to do so he had only himself to blame. Without 
calling upon the defence, Judge Smyly said there was no 
case, and entered judgment for the defendant, with costs. 
It was then intimated that the counterclaim would not be 
proceeded with ; but Mr. Robinson asked for the costs of 
the various inspectors he had in court to give evidence 
as to the condition of the premises, also for the costs of 
taking photographs, and a special fee for himself. Judge 
Smyly granted Mr. Robinson 5/. 5s. as his fee, and allowed 
all the costs asked for. 



Sale of Food and Drugs Acts. 

Oil of Almonds. 

At the Burnley Police Court on Wednesday, October 2, 
Nehemiah Tomlinson, chemist and druggist, and Jesse 
Tomlinson, Padiham Road, were summoned under Sec- 
tion 6 of the 1875 Act for selling as almond oil an oil 
which the public analyst certified to be apricot-kernel oil. 
The Town Clerk (Mr. Thomas) said that the defendant, 
Nehemiah Tomlinson, carries on business at 110 Padiham 
Road, Burnley, and on August 19 sixpennyworth of oil 
of almonds was purchased in his shop by an agent of the 
inspector. The sample was divided into three parts, and 
the Borough Analyst's certificate of analysis included the 
following observations : 

" The sample of oil of almonds received contained 100 parts 
of apricot-kernel oil, and no one part of genuine almond 
oil, and was not therefore of the nature and quality de- 
manded by the purchaser." 

The Town Clerk insisted that it is no part of a chemist's 
business to substitute for the article asked for some other 
article which, in his (the chemist's) opinion, might be 
quite as good for the purpose it was asked for. 

Before evidence was called, Mr. A. Riley, for the de- 
fence, raised a legal technicality regarding the wording 
of the summons. Having read Section 6, he submitted that 
the offence was not of selling one drug for another, but 
of selling a drug to the prejudice of the purchaser. In 
the summons against defendant there was no allegation 
that there was any prejudice to the purchaser. 

The Town Clerk : It is not necessary to state in the 
summons that it is to the prejudice of the purchaser. Are 
not the words, " Is not of the nature, substance, and 
quality demanded by the purchaser" quite sufficient? I 
ask for the summons to be amended. 

Mr. Riley here objected, and contended that the prose- 
cution had no power to amend the summons. 

The Town Clerk : You have, if the amendment does not 
prejudice defendant's case. 

After some discussion the case was adjourned for a 
fortnight. 



BANKRUPTCY REPORT. 

Re William IWigge, 10 Easlcheap, E.G., Proprie- 
tary Medicine Vendor, trading as the Leciform Co. 
and the Selecta Manufacturing Co. — The first meeting 
of the creditors under this failure was held on 
Tuesday at the London Bankruptcy Court, before Mr. 
W. P. Bowyer. Official Receiver. Having called over the 
proofs of debt, the Chairman reported that it appeared from 
the debtor's statement that he came to this country from 
Germany in 1907, and started dealing in a brain-nerve food 
styled Antineurasthin. He had a borrowed capital of 
300/., and traded as the Antineurasthin Co. For the pur- 
poses of the business the debtor entered into a contract 
with a German firm for the manufacture of the food. He 



Index Folio 536 



October 5, 1912 



THE CHEMIST AND DRUGGIST 



45 



expended a considerable amount of money in advertising 
the food, and worked up a good business, making in the 
first year a turnover of about 6,000/. About the end of 1909 
the manufacturing firm in Germany supplied to his agent in 
Australia under the contract food which was utterly unfit 
for consumption, the result being that his connection and 
trade both in England and Australia were ruined. The 
German firm gave the debtor credit for certain sums in hi 
account with them, but made a claim against him for a 
balance due to them, obtained a judgment for 225/., and the 
business was practically stopped. Previous to the collapse 
a company was registered as the Antineurasthin Co., Ltd. 
to take up the business; the debtor acted as managing direc 
tor, and as vendor he held the whole of the shares. The 
■company, however, had done no business during the la 
two years, and no present value was placed upon its 
shares. About 1909 the debtor initiated another business 
for the sale of " Samol," an ointment for the alleviation 
of rheumatism. He entered into contracts with a firm at 
Vienna for the supply of this ointment, and spent a good 
deal of money in advertising it. However, he found him- 
self unable to meet his advertising accounts owing to his 
being short of money, but principally to the collapse of his 
Antineurasthin business, and he gradually got behind 
with his payments, and in the spring of 1910 he made a 
private arrangement with his creditors. The debtor subse- 
quently continued the business with a capital of 750/. pro- 
vided by his wife, who afterwards advanced him further 
sums, and was a present creditor for 2,000.'. He took up 
a nerve and brain food called " Leciform," carrying on 
the business in the names of the Leciform Co. and the 
Selecta Manufacturing Co. Some time ago he again found 
"himself short of capital with which to meet his advertising 
accounts as they became due, and consequently fell behind 
with his payments. Creditors pressed, and the debtor en- 
deavoured to float a company to take over his business. He 
also tried to effect a settlement with the petitioning credi 
-tors, but was unable to do so, and these bankruptcy pro 
ceedings were instituted. The statement of affairs was not 
lodged, but the debtor roughly estimated his liabilities at 
5,000/. and his assets at about 168/. In the absence of any 
proposal the case was left with the Official Receiver to bo 
'wound-up in bankruptcy.

A Winter Supplement. — Messrs. Burgoyne, Burbidges 
.& Co., manufacturing chemists, Coleman Street, London, 
E.C., have published a winter supplement to their cata- 
logue of counter requisites. It deals with specialities 
which the chemist needs for autumn and winter trade, 
such as " cream " cod-liver oil emulsion, cough-mixtures, 
malt- extract, throat-pastilles, and toilet-creams. The 
list gives illustrations, prices, and other particulars of 
■each article. 

Bovril Bonus.— Bovril, Ltd., 152 to 166 Old Street, 
London, E.C.. have, in view of the approach of the 
winter season, with consequent increase in the demand for 
■bovril, again instituted their retailers' bonus system. The 
■offer is to pay a 5-per-cent. cash bonus on all orders re- 
ceived between September 16 and October 31 inclusive 
.calculated on the gross purchases. The company will send 
fuller details of the offer to any of our readers who 
.communicate with the head office. 

Glidine Compounds.— Messrs. Menley & James, Ltd 
:Menley House, Farringdon Road, London, E.C., announce 
■by circular that they have from October 1 reduced the 
price of their tablet preparations— iodoglidine bromo- 
glidme. luesan, and arsan. These, which are retailed in

Hinder the new scale. In the case of ferroglidine the 
prices per tube are retail Is. (minimum lid.), wholesale 
■yd. Arrangements have also been made for exchanging 
old stock, about which inquiries should be directed ° 

Messrs. S. Maw, Son & Sons, Aldersgate Street 
London, E.G., m the last issue of their " MSS." say : 

The publication of "Maw's Page" in The Chemist and 
Druggist of October 19 will complete the first year of 
issue ot this popular weekly record of the progress of the 

House of Maw " The production has involved the use 
•of between 13,000 and 14,000 printed words and a seriet 
■ot illustrations unique in trade advertising. To make 

Maw s Page attractive, useful, and interesting is our 
•constant policy. That our efforts are appreciated we have 
ample proof. There is something new in nearly every 

Maw s Page. 

We cordially agree that Messrs. Maw have made their 
weekly announcements such a feature in each of our issues 
that they are looked for and studied well. 

The " Zudor " Jacket.— Messrs. Cuxson, Gerrard & Co 
Ltd., Corporation Street, Birmingham, have introduced 
in six sizes a meat useful, absorbent 
cotton-wool and gauze-tissue jacket, for 
wearing by those who are affected by 
any chest or lung trouble. It is worn 
as shown in the engraving, and the 
material is white, quilted, and well 
finished, to tie on with tapes. It pro- 
mises to be, as the makers say. " a 
boon to nurses and mothers in cases of 
pneumonia, bronchitis, and asthma," its 
absorbent quality being not the least 
commendable of its virtues. No. 1 
jacket, measuring 8 in. across the chest 
and 6 in. from shoulder to waist, retails 
at yd., and the other five sizes are pro- 
portionately large, with a difference in 
price of Zd. for each size, No. 6 thus 
retailing at 2s. Full particulars as to 
the wholesale terms, and specimen hand- 
bills descriptive of the jackets (the 
design of which is registered), can 
be obtained from the makers, Messrs. 
■Cuxson, Gerrard & Co., Ltd., at the above address. 




Cod-liver Oil Emulsion. — The illustration shows a 
plastic model for advertising cod-liver oil emulsion which 




is being offered by Messrs. Evans Sons Lescher & Webb, 
Ltd., Liverpool and London, to purchasers of certain 
quantities of their emulsion. Particulars of this offer 
and of other winter medicines are given in an eight-page 
circular which we have received this week. The demand 
for season goods is likely to be somewhat earlier than 
usual owing to the unfavourable summer through which 
the country has passed. 

Oriental Tooth Powder is now put on the market by 
Messrs. Jewsbury & Brown, Ardwick Green, Manchester, 
the originators and 
proprietors of Oriental 
Tooth-Paste, whose 
popularity at home is 
rivalled by the de- 
mand for it in the 
British Dominions be- 
yond the Seas and in 
the United States. The 
new powder is a white, 
impalpable powder, 
which the 'manufac- 
turers have succeeded 
in freeing absolutely 
-from grittiness, so 
that it is an effective 
cleanser without being 
injurious to the dental 
enamel. It is guar- 
anteed by Jewsbury & 
Brown under the 
U S.A. Food and 
Drugs Act, 1906. The 

powder is put up in a flat tin to retail at 6d. , and in 
a canister tin to retail at Is. (P.A.T.A. face value in 
both cases), showing a good profit. The tins are beauti- 
fully decorated, in style closely resembling Crown Derby 
china. The flat tin, as well as the canister, has an 
orifice in the side measuring ^ in. long and ^ irr. deep, 
which is opened by turning round the lid, so that '"a 
dash " can be put on the tooth-brush without removing 
the lid — a great convenience. The firm supply an elegant 
showcard with the powder, which we reproduce. The 
card is beautifully coloured, the containers in facsimile 
of the originals. 




An Optimist is the man who looks after your eyes ; a 
pessimist is the man who attends to your feet, wrote the

PHARMACEUTICAL SOCIETY 

OF GREAT BRITAIN. 

Council-meeting. 

THE monthly meeting of the Council was held at 
16 Bloomsbury Square, London, W.C., on October 2. 
Mr. Currie, Mr. Cuff, and Mr. Harrison were absent 
owing to pressing engagements and other causes. The 
Treasurer stated that 500/. is to be added to the Life 
Members' Reserve Fund, this being a similar amount 
to that set aside two years ago. From the Benevolent 
Fund grants amounting to 92Z. 10s. were made to seven 
persons. It was also agreed to elect on December 10 four 
more annuitants on the fund. Eight candidates are to 
be put forward. The report of the Local Associations 
Committee brought the interesting announcement from 
Mr. Rowsell, Chairman of the Standing Committee on 
Insurance, that the Regulations are on the point of being 
issued. He emphasised the friendly relations that 
exist between the Committee and the Insurance Com- 
missioners. Mr. Sargeant made a spirited protest against 
the use of the funds of the Society in compiling, if 
requested to do so by the Commissioners, a list of firms 
and persons entitled to go on the panel for the dispensing 
and supply of medicines. He referred to the Standing 
Committee on Insurance as "an unholy alliance," on 
account, apparently, of the inclusion of representatives 
of limited companies, and said that no man could do 
"magnificent work for the Government " and look after 
pharmacy at the same time. Mr. Rowsell answered this 
attack quietly but effectively, by pointing out that there 
is a difference between "Government" and "party," 
and reminding Mr. Sargeant of the duties of citizenship. 
There were several other speakers, and Mr. Sargeant was 
appealed to to withdraw his motion for rejecting the 
report of the Local Associations Committee, but refused to 
do so. In the end he was the sole protestor against the 
adoption of the report. The President also referred to the 
Regulations regarding Medical Benefit, which he said are 
on the point of being made public. He hoped the Regula- 
tions would commend themselves to pharmacists. The 
Public Pharmacists' and Dispensers' Association have 
obtained the use of the Society's lecture-theatre for 
October 30, when Sir Victor Horsley is to give the 
inaugural address. 

The Councillors present were : Mr. C. B. Allen (Presi- 
dent), Mr. E. White (Vice-President), Mr. W. H. Gibson 
(Treasurer), and Messrs. F. E. Bilson, A. S. Campkin, 
F. J. Gibson, R. L. Gifford. D. Gilmour. A. Hagon, 
J. F. Harrington, E. T. Neathercoat. G. T. W. News- 
bolme, F. A. Rogers, P. F. Rowsell, F. P. Sargeant, 
C. Symes, T. A. White, and J. R. Young. 

The meeting began punctually at eleven o'clock, the 
first business being the reading and confirmation of the 
minutes of the previous meeting. 

Absent Councillors. 

The President said he had received a letter from Mr. 
Currie, who was unable to be present owing to business 
disturbances. He has also had the misfortune to lose 
his mother, her death following very closely that of his 
father. The President said he proposed to transmit to 
Mr. Currie an expression of sympathy in his bereavement. 
Mr. Harrison was also unable to be present owing to a 
business engagement ; and Mr. Cuff, who had been at 
committee work on the previous day, had had to leave to 
attend a meeting of the Kent Insurance Committee at 
Maidstone. 

Death. 

The President also mentioned that the Society had 
lost a loyal divisional officer through the death of Mr. 
Joseph Senior, Eastbourne. 



Elections and Restorations. 
Nineteen members were then elected and thirty student- 
associates. Thirty-three persons were restored to then- 
former position in the Society, and eight names were 
replaced on the Register of Chemists and Druggists. 

Finance. 

The Treasurer then presented the report of the 
Finance Committee. The receipts of the General Fund 
amounted to 2,902/. 13s. Id., made up as follows : 
Penalties and costs, 76/. 12.s. Id. ; subscriptions, 145/. 19s. ; 
"Journal" and publications, 1,102c'. lis. Id. ; registration- 
fees, 138/. 12s. ; examination-fees, 913/. 14s. ; Carteighe 
legacy (balance and interest), 514/. 12s. lid. ; restoration- 
fees, 21. 2s. ; dividend, 8/. 9s. 6d. ; making the balancle, 
after payments from the previous month, of 2,146/. 6s. 9c/., 
from which the following payments were recommended 
to be made : "Journal" and publications, 1,197/. lis. 8c/. ; 
stationery, etc., 23/. 16s. 6c/. ; current expenses, 400/. ; 
salaries, etc., 372/. 13s. 8c/.; law charges, 78/. 19s. 2d.; 
house, 226/. 10s. ; library, 1/. 14s.— a total of 2,301Z. 5s. 
The balance on the Benevolent Fund current account was 
shown as 525/. 14s. Id. ; donation account, 309/. 15s. Id. ; 
and on the Orphan Fund, 69/. 14s. 6c/. 

The Treasurer, in moving the adoption of the report, 
said the accounts called for no special comment. The 
committee recommended that 500/. of the amount re- 
ceived during the past two years as life-membership fees 
be invested on the Life Members' Fund Account. A 
similar amount was, he explained, invested two years 
ago. Although the transaction amounted to placing 
money from one pocket into another, it formed a special 
reserve and additional safeguard. 

The Vice-President said he was glad to see the step 
taken in regard to life-members' subscriptions, which 
had become a serious question. To spend these sub- 
scriptions as income might in time create an unfortunate 
position. 

The report was adopted, and there were also carried 
resolutions authorising the Treasurer to pay the moieties 
to the holders of the Jacob Bell scholarships, the Red- 
wood scholarship, and the C. J. Hewlett exhibition. 
Benevolent Fund. 

Mr. F. J. Gibson, Chairman of the Benevolent Fund 
Committee, then presented the report of that committee, 
which was first considered in camera, after which, in 
moving its adoption, Mr. Gibson said the financial aspect 
of the fund was not so bright compared with the posi- 
tion a year ago. It was estimated that at the end of 
the year there would be a balance of 220/., against 284/. 
last year. Referring then to the number of annuitants 
on the fund, Mr. Gibson said that last October there 
were twenty-eight, while four were added in December, 
but death has reduced the number to twenty-seven. It 
is a recommendation of the committee that four annui- 
tants be elected in December. He mentioned also that 
there are twenty- nine " minor " annuitants — persons re- 
ceiving smaller sums — whose grants amount to 634/. a 
year. At the meeting on the previous day there were 
seven applicants for assistance, and grants were made 
amounting to 92/. 10s. 

The President said it would probably be news to 
many that there are so many " minor " annuitants. This 
is an excellent feature of the work, as many relatives 
are induced to supplement the Society's grant and the 
Old Age Pensions which these persons receive. 

The report was adopted. Resolutions were also carried 
authorising the election on December 10 of four annui- 
tants and sanctioning the payment of 30/. to the Wan- 
stead Infants' Orphan Asylum for the support of E. P. 
Airey for one year. 

Local Associations Committee. 

Mr. E. T. Neathercoat, Chairman of this committee, 
presented the report, which dealt with the meetings that 
have been held in various parts of the country under 
the auspices of the committee. It dealt also with future 
arrangements for meetings under the Federation scheme. 
Mr. Neathercoat pointed out) that iseveral associations 
have been formed in central districts hitherto unorganised,

THE CHEMIST AND DRUGGIST 



October 5, 1912 



and added that the importance of these new associations 
will be obvious at a time when the battle regarding the 
National Insurance Act is being shifted to the county- 
boroughs. These societies wilLbe of great service in the 
collective bargaining for the supply of drugs to insured 
persons. The first district meeting under the Federation 
scheme is to be held at Cardiff on October 3. 

Mr. Rowseix said he hoped sincerely that chemists 
will support very heartily and immediately the work 
that is being done so well by the Local Associations Com- 
mittee in the matter of the National Insurance Act. He 
desired to point out that the work the committee has 
been doing is not in the slightest degree hostile to the 
schemes of the Insurance Commissioners. The negotia- 
tions right through have been of a friendly character, 
and that is still maintained. He sincerely hoped that 
local Pharmaceutical Insurance Committees would do all 
they can to back up immediately the lead given by the 
Local Associations Committee, so that pharmacy through- 
out the country may present a united front at a 
very critical period of its history. 

A Strong Protest. 

Mr. Sargeant said he objected very much to Para- 
graph 4 of the report, which was as follows : 

The committee took into consideration the possibility of 
the Society being asked to provide a list of firms and persons 
entitled to go upon the panel for the dispensing and supply 
of medicines to insured persons under the Insurance Act. 
After considerable discussion the Chairman was authorised 
to make arrangements for the compilation of as complete a 
list as possible for use in the event of a request by the 
Commissioners for such a list. 

He said that unless this paragraph were removed he 
should move that it be referred back to the committee. 
He objected to it on four grounds : (1) it violates the 
principle of successful organisation, by requiring one com- 
mittee to do the work of another ; (2) it is an emphatically 
wrong assumption that the Council has as part of its 
functions the representation of co-operative bodies in 
addition to its own members ; (3) it empowers the use 
of the financial resources of the Society for purposes which 
are not connected with the members of the Society ; and 
(4) assumes that the local organisation committees are 
still willing to work with the Council, notwithstanding 
that vhe committees have not received the confidential 
reports promised them on their formation. The Standing 
Committee on Insurance has identical interests with the 
members of the Society in one direction, but not in 
other directions. It is a most unholy alliance, formed as 
a result of the 1908 Act, and for special work. The duty 
of that Committee is to do all the work connected with 
the National Insurance Act, and it has chosen to work 
in secret. In the provinces nothing is known of the 
proceedings, and the Local Committees formed with the 
object of receiving confidential communications have not 
been made acquainted with the work. If these commit- 
tees were not to be treated with they should not have 
been formed. Mr. Rowsell stated at Exeter that Mr. 
Glyn-Jones has been doing magnificent work for the 
Government. The policy he has been pursuing is exceed- 
ingly favourable to the Government. No man, said Mr. 
Sargeant, can do magnificent work for the Government 
-and look after pharmacy at the same time. There is, he 
-;rdded, a deliberate attempt to use the finances of the 
Society for the benefit of the Insurance Committee. It 
began when last year delegates were sent to Germany to 
collect information for the use of that complex body. 
He had the very strongest objection to such application 
<if the Society's finances, and looked to the Council to 
raise itself above the suspicion of "hole-and-corner" 
work. He moved that paragraph 4 of the report be 
referred back. 

Mr. Rowsell rose, and was about to reply, when it was 
pointed out that the resolution had not been seconded. 
There was a few seconds' silence, when Dr. Symes said 
he would formally second it, to enable the matter to 
be discussed. 

Mr. Rowsell said it is evident that Mr. Sargeant 
does not distinguish between Government and party. It 
is the duty of every citizen to do his utmost for the 



Government of the country. He and his colleagues on 
the committee have done their utmost to benefit the craft, 
and they have been assured that the work that has been 
done has been absolutely to the benefit of pharmacy. 
He knew nothing of any " hole-and-corner " work; all 
that has been done has been carried out in consultation, 
with the Standing Committee on Insurance working with 
the committees representing England, Scotland, and 
Wales, and wherever possible the constituencies have been, 
taken into very full and sympathetic consultation. 

Mr. Gilmour said that hitherto the Council has kept 
clear of the Standing Committee on Insurance, but now 
seems to be showing a new position. Certain desperate- 
cases require strong action. Is this a case where the 
Society can do better service for its members than any 
other body ? 

Mr. Gifford said he was sorry to notice that a charge 
was made of political subservience. Many of his col- 
leagues differ from him in politics, but nothing to his mind 
has been more admirable or shown such broadmindedness 
of the Council than its relations to the National Insurance 
Act. The Council has risen above party and individual 
considerations. The most remarkable thing has been the 
absolute oneness of action and motive in devoting the 
whole of the resources of the Council to the one interest 
of the profession of pharmacy. 

Mr. Campkin said the Council is the last body to be- 
accused of going out of its way to assist the present 
Government. In this matter it is a question of " a plague 
on both your houses," and pharmacists look to no Govern- 
ment to assist them individually. The manner in which 
the Society's representative has behaved and been listened 
to in Parliament has been most astonishing. The one 
idea of every member of the Council — irrespective of 
political opinions — has been to represent the great body 
of pharmacists throughout the country. The National 
Insurance Act is an Act of Parliament supported by the 
Opposition and passed through the House of Lords, so 
that no one can say it is a party measure. It might, in 
his opinion, have been more favourable in certain direc- 
tions in which he is interested. (Laughter.) The Coun- 
cil is doing its best to carry out the provisions of the 
Act with as little friction as possible. So far success 
has attended these efforts, and pharmacists may still 
pluck the flower of safety, but this they cannot do if 
divided into political camps. 

Mr. F. J. Gibson said that Mr. Sargeant, like many 
other people, confined nimself to a destructive policy, and 
offered not a single line of constructive policy. The 
Council represents all chemists and 7,000 members, and 
cannot confine any benefits to members alone. To benefit 
the craft in general has been the object of the Insurance 
Committee. 

Mr. Hagon said Mr. Rowsell had completely justified 
the position taken up during the negotiations that have 
tc.ken place over the Insurance business. The position 
has been the most democratic attitude ever adopted by 
the Council in that it has at last recognised that there 
are interests outside those of its members. Had the 
Council allowed the matter to go on without doing any- 
thing because of the fear of benefiting others besides the 
members, the criticism at this time would have been 
overwhelming. Mr. Sargeant has gone back to the con- 
servatism of twenty years ago, and shut his eyes on pre- 
sent-day conditions. The representatives of corporations 
on the Standing Committee on Insurance have been most 
loyal and helpful to the present, and he had no doubt 
this attitude will continue in the future. 

The Vice-President thought that Mr. Sargeant had 
only taken the opportunity of the paragraph in the report 
to say what he did, although there is nothing ' there to 
justify his remarks. Does he really mean that m the 
possibility of the Commissioners applying to the Council 
for certain information they are to be refused? 

Mr. Sargeant : It does not concern the Council but 
the Standing Committee on Insurance. 

The Vice-President : It would be as well to know 
exactly what the charge is. 

Mr. Neathercoat also said that the speech was not at all 
apposite to the paragraph, but Mr. Sargeant seemed to have 



Index Folio 542

THE CHEMIST AND DEUGGIST 



5] 



seized the opportunity to make an attack on the com- 
mittee and its officers. No defence is necessary at that 
Council to such a charge. For his own part and on 
behalf of the Local Associations Committee he could not 
accept the amendment. His committee is charged with 
■doing work which is not organisation work. To his mind 
Insurance work and the work that has been done are 
absolutely identical. There is no other committee of the 
Council which could undertake the work, and no other 
"body than the Council that could possibly compile the 
list referred to. The Council is the body to which the 
"Commissioners would apply, and if the Standing Committee 
had been asked to supply such a list they could only have 
landed the request to the Council. He denied the charge 
that the committee is acting in opposition to the Pharma- 
ceutical Local Committees; on the contrary, a close unison 
•exists. The Local Committees appreciate the work that is 
Ibeing done, and are doing everything in their power to 
assist and back up the work. When one considers the 
position that pharmacy was in when the Bill was intro- 
duced and the present work accomplished, it is distinctly 
ungenerous, and not in the interest of pharmacy, to engage 
in petty squabbles at that table. 

Dr. Symes thought that Mr. Sargeant, having made his 
protest, should withdraw his motion. The answers 
had been satisfactory, and he (Dr. Symes) did not think 
it was intended to attack the Council. It might have 
■occurred to him that the committee proposed to do the 
work of another, and he should have raised the point 
in the form of a question. 

Mr. Sargeant was asked by the President whether he 
desired to withdraw his motion, and replied : 1 must 
persist in it, and shall raise the question on every possible 
occasion when the funds of the Society are being used for 
such an object. 

Mr. Newsholme pointed out that in the present case it 
was only an offer to give assistance if asked. Having 
spent time and money in assisting the working of the 
Act, it would be too absurd to refuse suddenly to help. 

The President pointed out that the Council is the only 
foody which could compile the list required. 

Mr. Sargeant's motion to reject Paragraph 4 of the 
Local Committee's report was put to the meeting, but 
Mr. Sargeant was the only supporter. 

The report was then adopted, Mr. Sargeant being the 
only objector. 

The Eecistrar's Report. 
The Registrar submitted his report of the apprentices or 
students registered since July. The list contained eighty- 
five names. 

The Medical-benefit Begulations. 

The President said he wished to add to what Mr. 
Bowsell had said in regard to the National Insurance 
Act. He understood that although the Regulations for the 
medical benefit as they affect pharmacists are not pub- 
lished, they will be within a day or two. The work of 
the pharmacists representing the trade has been very 
arduous, and he hoped these Regulations will show that 
there 5s every disposition on the part of the Commis- 
sioners to provide for a proper pharmacy service. The 
technical advice which has been tendered to the Com- 
missioners has been largely acted upon. The Council's 
duty is now to supply the Pharmaceutical Local Committees 
with certain documents and to give suggestions as to 
future procedure. He (the President) was in the uncom- 
fortable position of having to comment upon Regulations 
of which he knew nothing. The Standing Committee on 
Insurance, had kept their secrets so well in this case that 
he (the President) had no better information on the sub- 
ject than those persons in the North of whom Mr. 
Sargeant had spoken. He was quite satisfied that their 
officers have dealt in a capable manner with the many 
questions that have been placed before them. He 
hoped the Regulations would loommend themselves to 
phai-maeists, who, he trusted, would carefully study them 
as soon as they receive them, so as to understand exactly 
what the position is. 



The matter was mentioned later on in the report of 
the Parliamentary and General Purposes Committee. This 
report stated that Mr. Rowsell outlined the steps taken, 
so that the regulations for the pharmaceutical part of 
the medical benefit " shall be reasonable and acceptable to 
the pharmacists of the country." Mr. Glyn-Jones and 
Mr. Woolcock also reported on the lines of policy which 
would be followed. 

Other Matters. 

The same, report contained a reference to the conduct, 
o: a member of the Society, who is to be called upon to 
explain his action. 

The President, Vice-President, Mr. Harrington, Mr. 
Newsholme, and Mr. Young were appointed a sub-com- 
mittee to select the members of the Board of Examiners 
for the ensuing year. 

The Chemists' Assistants' Association asked permission 
to use the lecture-theatre on .November 28 for the pur- 
pose of a lecture and demonstration on radium by Mr. 
Glew. This will be granted in due course. 

The British Pharmaceutical Conference conveyed a re- 
solution of thanks for the use of the Society's house in 
York Place, Edinburgh, during the recent meeting. 

The Public Pharmacists' and Dispensers' Association 
were given permission to use the lecture-theatre on Octo- 
ber 30, when Sir Victor Horsley is to give an address on 
" The Legislation of To-day and its Effect on the Practice 
of Medicine and Pharmacy." 

This concluded the public business. 



School ol Pharmacy. 

The seventy-first session of this school was opened on 
Wednesday afternoon, October 2, when a good com- 
pany met in the lecture-theatre at 17 Bloomsbury Square, 
to witness the presentation of certain awards, and to 
hear the inaugural address by Mr. J. R. Young, of War- 
rington. The President, wearing his chain of office, came 
into the theatre at 3.10 p.m., being accompanied by the 
Vice-President, the Secretary, and Mr. Young, as well 
as the professors and lecturers in the school and the 
following members of the Council : 

Messrs. F. J. Gibson, David Gilmour, J. F. Harrington, 

G. T. W. Newsholme, P. F. Rowsell, Frank Rogers, and 
Charles Symes. _ Mr. W. S. Glyn-Jones, M.P., and Mr. A. W. 
Gerrard (Birmingham) also came in with the President. 
Among others present were Mr. R. R. Bennett, Mr. Peter 
Davidson, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Deane, Mr. J. W. Douglas, 
Mr. E. H. Farr, Mr. and Mrs. H. Finnemore, Mr. and Mrs. 
Alan Francis, Mr. and Mrs. G. B. Francis, Mrs. J. M. 
Hardie (Alyth), Mr. Vivian C. Hewlett, Mr. E. M. Holmes, 
Mr. W. Kirkby (Manchester), Mr. and Mrs. Peter MacEwan, 
Dr. W. H. Martindale, Mr. E. S. Peck, Mr. and Mrs. 
P. E. F. Perredes, Mr. A. J. Pidd (Manchester), Mr. R. A. 
Robinson, jun., Mr. Herbert Skinner, Mr. Thomas Simpson 
(Newcastle-on-Tyne), Mr. T. Stephenson (Edinburgh), Mrs. 

H. N. Stroud (Leicester), Mrs. Edmund White and Master 
White, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. U. Woolcock, and Mr. R. F. 
Young. 

The President had a most cordial reception on rising 
to open the proceedings. He expressed pleasure at 
seeing such a large number present, and called upon the 
Dean (Professor Greenish) to read his 

Report on the School. 
Professor Greenish stated that he had but little to 
add to the report which his predecessor in office (Pro- 
fessor Crossley) read at the annual prize distribution 
.last June. Out of the 42 students who had presented 
themselves for the Minor examination 34, or 81 per- 
cent., succeeded in satisfying the examiners. (Apnlause.) 
This proportion was rather larger than that obtained' 
last year, but was yet a little below the average of the 
last few years. (Cries of " Oh " from the students, 
followed by some laughter.) In the personnel of the staff 
several changes had been made. These, however, would 
in no way imply any diminution in the efficiency of the 
teaching. Mr. Warner, who resigned his post as Assis- 
tant Lecturer in Chemistry and Physics, succeeded Dr. 
Cavers as Lecturer in Botany. Mr. Warner was suc- 
ceeded by Mr. Smith as Lecturer and Senior Demon- 
strator in Chemistry, while Mr. W. A. Storey and Mr. 
S. H. Stroud had been appointed Demonetrators in

Chemistry. The Dean proceeded to mention academical 
successes by several past students, and confirmed the 
favourable report made by Professor Crossley in June 
regarding the prospects of the coming session. Sixty- 
nine students had already entered their names, as against 
56 at the corresponding period of last year. Sixty-one 
out of 69 took complete Major or Minor courses, eight 
entering for shorter periods. He hoped that students 
starting from the commencement of the session would 
give a good account of themselves. There was no reason 
why they should not equal or even surpass the records 
of previous years. (Applause.) 

The President explained that this was not the annual 
prize distribution in connection with the School of Phar- 
macy, and called for the report of the Curator on 

The Herbarium Competition. 

Mr. Holmes said that both the collections submitted 
to him were of considerable merit and of nearly equal 
value, although in different respects, so that it was diffi- 
cult to differentiate between them. That of Mr. Leslie 
P. Davidson, to whom the silver medal had been awarded, 
complied perfectly with the requirements. That of Mr. Eric 
Tittring differed in that it contained 136 plants, or four- 
teen fewer than the previous one. As an old prize-winner, 
Mr. Holmes remarked that the award was by no means 
commensurate with the trouble and expense involved in 
making the collection. The medals must be regarded as 
forming public recognition of work well done. In 1856 
and in succeeding years the winner of the silver medal 
had to give his collection to the Society, but he believed 
that did not now hold good under the new regulations. 
In the Herbarium upstairs they had some of the finest 
tollections presented from time to time, and one, by Mr. 
Wiles, was a type of what subsequent collections should 
be. 

The President then called upon Mr. Davidson, the 
winner of the silver medal, and Mr. Tittring, the winner 
of the bronze one. Having shaken hands with each of 
them, he remarked that their collections had been judged 
as about equal. Mr. Holmes, however, like a wise man. 
had not given a reason why one of them should have 
a silver and the other a bronze medal. The collection 
of herbaria entailed a tremendous amount of work and 
involved the expenditure of a great deal of time. Each 
of the gentlemen had exhibited skill and patience in a 
very marked degree. Addressing Mr. Davidson, the 
President remarked, " I am most highly pleased, Mr. 
Davidson, to make this award to you, whom I have 
known since you were a baby. (Laughter and applause.) 
I have much pleasure in presenting you with this silver 
medal. We shall expect a great deal more attainment 
from a boy of your calibre." Presenting the bronze 
medal to Mr. Tittring. the President said that the only 
difference between it and the silver medal was that it 
was made of another metal — bronze. (Applause.) 

Council Prizes Examination. 

The President then read the report on the Council 
prizes examination by members of the Board of 
Examiners for Scotland, and 
explained how those honours had 
been instituted. The man who 
won the Pereira medal this year, 
he said, was Mr. S. H. Stroud. 
(Applause.) Mr. H. A. Phillips- 
was the winner of the Council's 
silver medal. (Applause.) Mr. 
H. Stout, of Edinburgh, was 
the winner of the bronze one. 
Addressing Mr. Stroud (who 
went up to the table amidst 
cheering), the President 6hook 
hands with him and 6aid, " I 
have had the pleasure of seeing 
you before. You have been a 
prize-winner, and you have held 
a scholarship, I know. You have something to do now 
in the direction of raising the status of those gentlemen 




Me. S. H. STitore. 



who are so enthusiastic. (Loud applause.) I am quite 
sure that 1 as they have demonstrated their appreciation of 
your success you will do all you can for them. You 
cannot lead them all on to win the Pereira medal, but 
you may, at any rate, have the success of immediate, 
future winners within your hands. I have pleasure in 
handing you this very handsome medal, which is the 
premier award given by this Society. In accepting it you 
assume very great responsibility — (applause) — because you 
have attained almost the summit of your endeavours as a 
student. I know the man who has got the medal will still 
continue to be a student from whom very much will be 
expected by and by. It gives me pleasure to direct your 
attention to the list of Pereira medallists whose names 
appear on the walls of this theatre. Many of these are of 
men who have distinguished themselves. I speak on 
behalf of the Council of the Society, as the father of all 
those students who come before me for prizes, when I say- 
that we expect a great deal from them. I am quite sure 
you wSl do your best to make yourself everlastingly worthy 
of this medal." (Applause.) The President also addressed 
Mr. Phillips, recalling previous honours secured by him, 
and remarking that the " runner-up " is almost as good as 
the prizeman. Speaking of the bronze medallist, the 
President expressed the hope that the member of the Board 
of Examiners present (Mr. T. Stephenson) would convey 
to him his congratulations when opportunity afforded. 
(Applause.) When calling upon Mr. Bennett to report on. 

The Scholarships Examinations, 
the President explained how the Jacob Bell scholarship 
originated, and spoke of its value, adding that nearly all 
the Bell scholars not only got easily through their Minor, 
but passed their Major examination and did credit to the 
pharmaceutical calling. If one went through the names 
of the winners of the Jacob Bell scholarships they would 
find among them those of many men who had distinguished 
themselves in the past, and many still living who were 
equally distinguished. Sir William Tilden, who won the 
first of the scholarships, gave a lecture there only a few 
months ago. He was still active though on the retired list, 
and his brain was still working well. (Applause.) 

Mr. R. R. Bennett, reporting on behalf of the com- 
mittee, consisting of the President, the Vice-President, and 
himself, appointed to make the award of the Jacob Bell 
memorial and the Manchester scholarships, stated that the 
examinations were held on June 18. Ten candidates com- 
peted for the Jacob Bell scholarship at the following- 
centres : London, 8 ; Manchester, 1 ; Edinburgh, 1. The 
minimum number of marks for the award was 400, or two- 
thirds of the maximum standard. Five of the ten candi- 
dates obtained a sufficient number of marks to qualify for 
the award of the scholarship. The first two places were 
taken by Mr. George Frederick Axon and Mr. Frank 
Wokes, who respectively obtained 79 per cent, and 78 per 




F. Axon. 



Wokes. 



cent, of the maximum number of marks. One candidate 
entered for the Manchester scholarship, but failed to 
obtain the minimum number of marks required to obtain 
the award of the scholarship. 

The President called up Mr. George Frederick Axon* 
and Mr. Frank Wokes, and said : " You are entering 
upon your pharmaceutical careers very happily in getting 
prizes like these at the very outset. There are a great

many men who tried to win the scholarship who did 
not get it. I have been one who tried and did not get it 
but I was not the first who did so. (Laughter.) The 
work that leads you on to the Bell scholarship is very 
far on towards your Minor examination, and must help 
you considerably in your further studies. We expect a 
great deal from you as Bell scholars. We expect you 
to work well, to do your best, and show that you have 
thoroughly well determined to make your scholarship a 
successful one. Mr. Wokes, I knew your father years 
ago, though I have never seen you before. Mr. Axon, 
I am glad to meet you. I am quite sure you two young 
men will work hard and by and by come before the future 
President for the prizes you will have earned. (Applause 

The President then referred to the other scholarships 
that have been awarded. In the course of his remarks he 
said : Mr. Walter Riley Pratt receives the Salter scholar 
ship and Miss Dorothy J. Bartlett the Redwood 
scholarship. Continuing, the President said he had 
another very pleasant duty to perform in asking 
Mr. Rymer Young, one of his colleagues on the 
Council, to deliver the inaugural address. The 
inaugural address used at one time to be the prero- 
gative of the President, but something like forty years 
ago a change was made by asking some other person to 
deliver it. Looking back at the names of the gentlemen 
who have delivered this address is really an education. 
We have had great chemists, great doctors, great scien- 
tists, honorary members who are associated with great 
societies, and a very large number of worthy names. He 
mentioned Sir Joseph Swan, Sir William Tilden, Sir 
Michael Foster, Sir Thiselton Dyer, Sir Henry Roscoe, 
Sir Lauder Brunton, Mr. Henry Brady, and others. 
Looking around for someone to address us to-day, it 
came across my mind that we have among us a man of 
enriched mind who could speak to us. We all know 
Mr. J. Rymer Young and what an excellent man he is 
in every way. (Applause.) He was associated, as you 
know, with the passing of the 1908 Act. He did a great 
deal for pharmacy then, and displayed exceptional ability 
in his conduct of the negotiations which went on in the 
House of Commons. (Applause.) 

The Inaugural Address. 

Mr. J. Rymer Young, who had a most enthusiastic recep- 
tion, said : Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen, — I have 
no doubt that my friend on the left desired to start me off, 
as it were; with a word of assurance. I would only suggest 
that, if that was his idea, his methods are peculiar. 
(Laughter.) First of all, he gives you a long catalogue 
of the heavy artillery which has boomed in tnis hall in the 
past, and then he nicely introduces into the business a 
little pop-gun from Warrington. (Laughter.) 

Mr. Rymer Young then gave his address, which is 
printed later (index folio 551). 

At the conclusion of the address 

Mr. J. F. Harrington, in proposing a vote of thanks to 
Mr. J. Rymer Young, described the inaugural address as 
having been both instructive and amusing. 

The President remarked that personally he was 
indebted to Mr. Young for the excellent address he had 
given. It was one which would, when printed, bear reading 
and afford entertainment and edification. (Applause.) 
, Mr. J. Rymer Young, in acknowledging the compliment, 
remarked that he did not imagine for one moment that he 
would carry with him every one in what he said. What he 
had witnessed, however, indicated that there were those 
who were not averse to listening when a little candid 
criticism was offered. He felt that he could not resist 
the opportunity which was afforded him of saying some- 
thing on educational matters. 

Other Business. 
The President remarked that in presenting the Pereira 
Modal he had omitted to hand to Mr. Stroud the books 
which accompanied that award. He also intimated receipt 
of letters of ano'ogy for absence from the following among 
others : Mr. Walter HiHs, Sir William Whitla, Sir William 
Tilden, Sir William Ramsay, Sir James Dewar, Professor 
Phillips, Mr. R. Winfrey, M.P., and Mr. J. P. Gilmour. 



Mr. A. W. Gerrard then proposed a vote of thanks to 
the President, which Mr. Allen briefly acknowledged. 

The company then adjourned to the examination hall for 
a cup of tea, where they were joined by some members of 
the Executive of the British Pharmaceutical Conference 
who had been unable to attend the inaugural meeting, 
among them Mr. F. W. Branson, F.I.C. (Leeds), Mr. 
C. A. Hill, B.Sc, F.I'.C, and Mr. H. Wilson, F.I.C. 
(Southampton).

POISONING FATALITIES. 



Eleven fatalities due to poisoning have been chronicled! 
this week. In three instances the poison was taken in 
mistake for drink. Two children were poisoned by their 
mother. 

Carbolic Acid— At Dublin, Daniel Brophy (54), labourer, 
drank carbolic disinfectant in mistake for stout, with fata) 
consequences. 

Laudanum was used for suicidal purposes by Samuel 
Hannibal (42), chapel caretaker, Arnold, and George Lind- 
say, retired butler, Bournemouth. 

Prussic Acid.— Edward Fisher, landlord of the Ballot Box 
Hotel, Horsendon Hill, Middlesex, was found dead in bed 
with a bottle which had contained prussic acid beside him. 
"Suicide while of unsound mind " was the verdict at the 
inquest. 

Salt of Lemon is understood to have been taken by Wil- 
helmina Suir (44), wife of a Porth colliery labourer, who 
was discovered in a dying condition. — A young woman named 
Annie Newton (35) died at Dewsbury as a result of having 
taken salt of lemon. Louisa Wood, widow, of 32 Bradford 
Road, Dewsbury, herbalist, said she sold salt of lemon 
which she purchased from a London firm of wholesale drug- 
gists. She had not her name on the boxes, which were 
"abelled " Poisonous." The Coroner observed that he 
would not say whether she was wrong or right in selling 
such poisons, but he was very doubtful about her being- 
right. Witness further said that she sold them chiefly to 
women for taking out iron moulds from cotton goods, etc. 
If a person came and bought one box she would not ask 
what it was wanted for. but if two were rjurchased she would 
sk that question Purchasers did not sign for thorn. 
Florence Smith, domestic servant and shop assistant in the 
employ of the last witness, said she sold the two boxes of salt 
of lemon to the deceased on Saturday nv*ht between eight 
and nine o'clock. Deceased did not say "what she wanted 
them for. The Coroner: Has your mistress ever told vou 
to ask people what they wanted them for?— Yes. Whv 
didn't you ? — I never thought about it. Dr. Duguid deposed 
that death was due to heart failure, following shock and 
the action of the drug. A Juryman : It is not a registered 
poison, I think?— Yes, it is. Another Juryman: You can 
buy it at all grocers' shops. It is in common use. The 
Coroner: Without the purchasers signing- for it? A Jury- 
man : Oh, yes ! D°tective-Sergeant Diwfield said he under- 
stood that the seller was liable to a penalty of hi. for selling

Octobee 5, 1912 



salt of lemon without the name and address of the vendor 
on the box. The Coroner (Mr. P. P. Maitland), in summing 
up, said he did not think it was right that people should be 
allowed to sell such poisonous stuff without its being signed 
for, and if it were lawful, he thought the law ought to be 
altered. He was determined to write to the Home Office 
and call their attention to the matter. It is reallv what is 
vulgarly termed a deadly poison, and people ought not to 
be able to get it so easily. The jury returned a verdict in 
accordance with the suggestion of the Coroner. 

Spirit of Salt. — At Mullaghmarget, Dungannon, Wm. J. 
McMinn (32) drank spirit of salt in mistake for whisky 
and died a few days later. — At Edmonton, Clara Alice 
White (30) killed her two children by poisoning them with 
hydrochloric acid. 

Kind not Stated. — At the inquiry held into the death of 
John Ellis Maddock (19), who committed suicide by taking 
poison at 74 Waterloo Road, London, S.E., it was stated 
deceased was apprenticed to a Blackpool chemist. The jury 
returned a verdict of " Suicide during temporary insanity." 
— James Lord, labourer, Wolstenholme, died at Bury, Lanes, 
from accidental poisoning with boiler composition.

Buchu leaves. 



Professor W. Mansfield, of the New 




York College of Pharmacy, read a paper on klip-buchu 

before the N.Y. State Phar- 
maceutical Association in 
June last, which is published 
in the " Practical Druggist " 
for August. Mr. Mansfield 
states that he found as much 
as 17 per cent, of klip-buchu 
mixed with long buchu in 
the different samples he 
examined. In one of these 
samples he found several 
flowers and fruits, which 
enabled him to identify the 
plant yielding klip-buchu. 
On a superficial examination 
of long buchu, he states, a 
person might easily fail to 
notice klip-buchu, especially 
if it is broken. The adul- 
terant was first described in 
" Curtis' s Botanical Maga- 
zine," 37. 1813. under the 
name of Diosma fragrans, as 
follows : 

Shrub two or three feet high, 
with erect twiggy branches. 
Leaves scattered, oblong, obtuse, 
with >a cartilaginous mucro- 
glandular denticulate margin, 
smooth, deep green on the upper 
surface, glaucous underneath, with two irregular rows of glan- 
dular dots; petiole very short, inserted into a stipular abutment. 
Flowers aggregate, terminal, but having a young shoot frequently 
extending beyond them, showy, rose-coloured. Peduncles two 
or three°times longer than the leaves, crimson, clammy, having 
two small subulate bracts near the base. Calyx covered with 
glands : segments patent, obtuse. Petals obsoletely crenulate, 
emarginate. Nectaries or barren filaments longer than the fertile 
ones, "and both crowned with a crimson gland. The whole plant 
is verv aromatic, without any admixture of the foxy smell so 
offensive in several species ; and is otherwise one of the most 
desirable of the whole .genus. Native of the Cape of Good Hope 
Flowers in May, June, and July. Propagated by cuttings. Later 
botanists found it was not a Diosma, and it was named Adenandra 
fragrans (Sims), R.N. S., a name which it still retains. First 
raised from seed sent by Mr. Nevin. collector to George Hibbers 
Esq., by Mr. Knight, now of the Exotic Nursery, King's Road 
Little Chelsea, by whom it was communicated to us. 
Klip-buchu grows in the same region as long buchu. The 
"Kew Bulletin" (1912, 326) contains the diagnostic 
characters of Barosma Pcgiene, Dummer. The specimen 
described was collected by Miss Alice Pegler on the grassy 
slopes of the Qolora Mouth, Ketani, in the eastern regions 
of Cape Colony, and forwarded to Kew in 1907. We repro 
ducc the '"Bulletin's" illustration of a branch of the plant, 
which is stated to be apparently new to science. It was 
referred to in the C. cfc D., 1910, II., 612.

OBSERVATIONS & REFLECTIONS. 

By Xrayser II. 



The Holiday Season 

is over, and most of my friends seem 
to have returned to work with a. feeling of relief. The 
weather, no doubt, is partly to blame for this, but I fear 
that pharmacists have less genius for holiday-making than 
the majority of Englishmen. Let us hope the Shops Act 
will work a -revolution in this respect, for it is certain that 
all work and no play makes not only Jack but his father 
dull. It has been said by someone, who either did not 
know how to take a holiday or had just spent a fortnight 
at a seaside resort in a, wet August, that life would be 
tolerable but for its pleasures. Why is it that nine out 
of every dozen people who take a summer holiday go to 
some crowded place, of the kind referred to ? Sheer gre- 
gariousness probably accounts for it in part, and the 
modern notion that sea-air is peculiarly healthful does the 
rest. Our ancestors, however, usually chose inland places 
as health resorts, or if they went to the sea did so for the 
sake of the bathing, not for the air. And as Mr. W. H. 
Hudson amusingly reminded us the other day, when they 
had to settle near the sea they built their villages behind 
some sheltering hill with their backs to the ocean, and as 
far away as possible from it. Personally, I would back 
a week in a mountain or upland village, whether for health 
or pleasure, against a month in any seaside place I know ; 
and if I really needed a change would leave wife and 
bairns behind me — or send them .to the sea ! 

Mr. Smallman's Interesting Letter 

giving his impressions of 
American pharmacy and general trade conditions confirms 
me in the belief that England is still the better place to 
live in. Mr. •Smallman speaks less strongly than Mr. 
Marriott Watson, but what he says points in the same 
direction. "The Chicago ideal," says Mr. Watson, 
" which with variations, and, of course, exceptions, is the 
American national ideal, recognises one force, and one 
force only, in the world, or rather makes other forces 
minor to it." Nothing else really counts; for the first 
time in history the worship of money has been elevated 
into a state religion. This age of trade has brought with 
it many benefits, increased general comfort, better sanitary 
conditions, fuller medical and surgical knowledge, and a 
hatred of war, but it is nevertheless " as callous, as selfish, 
as reckless of human life and suffering as was the age 
of the sword, and in some respects more so." Mr. 
Watson's indictment is strong, and his object, if, beyond 
a sensational bit of writing, he has one, appears to be a. 
warning against the Americanisation of our own commer- 
cial and national life. The process has, he tells us, begun : 
our feet are on the downward slope ; from a nation of shop- 
keepers (which is bad enough) we are becoming one of 
" stores " and trusts. Let us look across the Atlantic and 
take warning. Mr. Watson might be an old-fashioned 
pharmacist, writing with the Rexall invasion in mind ! 
His exaggerations, however, have too evidently some 
foundation in truth. 

The Standardisation of Disinfectants 

' ' by a simple bac- 
terial test capable of being easily effected " is what we 
have all been after for years, and all concerned will be 
supremely grateful to the Congress of Applied Chemistry 
if its committee can furnish such a test. At present the 
Rideal-Walker method holds the field, but it is admittedly 
unsatisfactory since it leaves out of account most impor- 



tant classes of germicides. In the main it is applicable 
chiefly to the tar acids, phenols, and eresols, and as 
these are very largely employed as disinfectant*, the 
R.-W T . carbolic-acid coefficient has obtained very wide 
recognition. But even as to the method for applying the 
test there is a difference of opinion, and "The Lancet" 
Commission, which was composed of some of the foremost 
living bacteriologists, suggested an improved technique. 
It is with the view of formulating and recommending a 
thoroughly satisfactory and universally applicable stan- 
dard that the Congress has nominated its committee, and 
I hope that its investigations will result in something 
definite and practical. 

Methylated Tincture of Iodine 

is possibly still used now 
and again for veterinary purposes, although every good 
pharmacist knows that the practice is highly reprehen- 
sible. In my apprenticeship days I was often called upon 
to make a methylated liniment of iodine for horse-doctors, 
and the practical experience I then gained of the ex- 
tremely irritating compounds that were produced led me 
in later years to discourage the practice in every possible 
way. Professor Remington's opinion, that tincture of 
iodine made with wood-alcohol is very dangerous, is one 
that I can easily accept, and I trust that the vogue of 
using industrial methylated spirit in the present craze for 
cheap methods of making hair-washes and other prepara- 
tions for external use, will not be extended to anything 
containing iodine. Such a proceeding in the case of 
official preparations is, of course, quite illegal, the use of 
methylated spirit in such cases being criminal. Apart 
from the question of illegality it is a scientific blunder, 
one of those blunders that are sometimes said to be 
worse than crimes. 

Cannabis Indica 

has fallen greatly into disuse in this 
country, and it matters little to us whether the drug is 
produced in Asia, Africa, or America. Quite possibly 
this lack of interest has been brought about by our failure 
to ensure that our preparations are always active. 
According to Professor Remington, the most active con- 
stituent is an open question. It may be true that our 
American friends have no settled convictions on the 
subject, but I can assure the Professor that it is not 
an open question here. This was settled many years 
ago when Professor C. R. Marshall showed that the active 
constituent is cannabinol, a, liquid resinous body. This 
substance is isolated with difficulty owing to its proneness 
to oxidation, and it must be kept in hermetically sealed 
phials. So kept it retains its activity for years, but 
when exposed to the air it rapidly passes into a form 
that is inert. All this is ancient history to us, and I am 
surprised that no attempt seems to have been made by the 
authors of the Congress paper on " Cannabis " to compare 
the cannabinol content with the physiological activity as. 
shown by the test on animals. 

Tiger's Fat 

does not appear in the list of thirty-five animal 
fats mentioned in Wootton's " Chronicles of Pharmacy " 
as those which have at one time or other received official 
sanction, but its use in medicine is not new or confined 
to Eastern countries. Lemery has an article on the animal, 
and says its fat is emollient and resolutive. I do not, 
however, find it mentioned in any English book, which 
is strange. Lion's fat was anciently in great repute in 
affections of the joints and as a cosmetic; it is prescribed 
(says Wootton) in the P.L. of 1618, but I do not find 
it in any earlier or later edition. The cousin of these 
beasts, the cat. both the wild and the domestic, had 
a singular reputation in medicine. Many parts of it, 
such as the brain, the blood, and its breath, were accounted 
poisonous, the first causing madness, the second epilepsy, 
the third consumption. But its fat had the same virtue 
as that of the tiger ; the animal itself, cut open and applied 
as a poultice, relieved pains in the side ; and the powder 
of an entirely black cat, burned in an earthen vessel 
and blown into the eye through a quill, cured blindness 
and pains in that organ — so, at least, says Topsell.

Medical Benefit. 

Through the courtesy of the National Health Insurance 
Commission of England, we are able to publish to-day 
the regulations as to the administration of medical benefit 
under the National Insurance Act, and it will be seen 
that the text confirms the "intelligent anticipation" 
which was given last week. We call particular attention 
to the regulations respecting the provision of drugs and 
appliances, especially Regulation 35, giving effect to the 
statutory provision Section 15 (5, iii.), as to the supply 
of drugs and medicines by medical practitioners. This 
carries out reasonably the principle of separating dispen- 
sing from prescribing, which, in the minds of many in 
English pharmacy, is the most vital provision in the 
Act so far as chemists and druggists are concerned. 
Another provision embodying a principle of high import- 
ance is the notice to be exhibited by persons under- 
taking the supply of drugs and appliances (Fourth Sche- 
dule). The only persons who may do all the work 
mentioned in the notice are registered chemists and those 
who carry orr business in full conformity with the Pharmacy 
Act, 1858, as amended by the Poisons and Pharmacy Act, 
1908. Other persons (not medical practitioners) who may 
be put on the panel will only be able to notify that they 
supply drugs (except scheduled poisons) and appliances. 
The provision (35) as to practitioners who are to supply 
drugs and appliances requires that the arrangement shall 
be approved by the Commissioners. Doctors must exhibit 
the notice, but they cannot use the dispensing line. The 
regulations require that persons who go on the panels 
shall keep stock of medicines as in lists to be prepared 
and the appliances mentioned in the Second Schedule. 
This emphasises the fact that the Commissioners are 
referring to local committees the preparation of lists of 
prices (see Regulations 33 and 34), the settlement of these 
and correlated details being subject to the approval of 
the Commissioners. This differs essentially in principle 
from the Continental system, where there is one national 
tariff of charges (see C . db D. Diary, p. 465) from which 
chemists give a rebate. Many had expected that the Con- 
tinental principle would have been followed in Great 
Britain, and they may be disappointed; but we think that 
reflection will convince them that the plan adopted is 
the better way, since prices will be fixed for each locality 
in accordance -with local requirements, the Commissioners 
controlling according to a tariff of charges in the com- 
pilation of which they have the assistance of representa- 
tive men with special knowledge. It is obvious from the 
absence of monetary figures in the Regulations that fees 
and prices have still to be fixed. The Chancellor of the 
Exchequer received on Wednesday a deputation of 
medical men on this point, and it is understood that he 
is to lay the whole matter before the Cabinet, therefore we 
must consider that doctors and chemists are not yet out of 
the wood ; but there is no reason to suppose that chemists 
are not getting what the Act provides for them.

Patent-medicine Inquiry. 

The House of Commons Select Committee on Patents 
Medicines will resume its deliberations as soon as the 
House reassembles for the Autumn Session next week. 
Further evidence will then be taken, and it is unlikely 
that the inquiry will be brought to a termination until the 
•early part of next year. In the meantime the Committee 
continues to receive from various quarters a great deal of 
information bearing upon the subject-matter of the 
inquiry. In this connection it may be stated that in the 
•course of a very short time there will be forwarded to the 
•Chairman a mass of evidence which was collected some 
time ago by the National Food Reform Association, with 
the object of impressing upon the Government the necessity 
•of instituting some such inquiry as that which has now 
been embarked upon. The Association took a leading part 
in the agitation for an inquiry into the sale of patent 
medicines, and has collected through the British repre- 
sentatives in foreign countries and the Agents-General in 
this country much valuable information as to the state 
•of the law in Continental and other countries. This has 
•been obtained from Austria- Hungary, Italy, France — in 
regard to which country a valuable report was forwarded 
foy Mr. Douglas Hogg, a leading English chemist in Paris, 
•on the subject of " remedes secrets " — Berlin — as to which 
a special report was prepared by the German Government — 
and the United States, in regard to which Mr. Bryce, the 
British Ambassador, caused a special report to be drawn 
up. Reports have also been furnished by the Agents- 
'General for the self-governing Colonies — Canada, Tas- 
mania, New Zealand, South and Western Australia, New 
South Wales, Queensland, and Victoria, all indicating the 
•state of the law in those parts of the Empire. The whole 
of this evidence was submitted some time ago to the British 
Medical Association, but as that body was overwhelmed 
with the preparation of its own case, it was not thought 
advisable to incorporate it in the testimony which was 
laid before the Committee by the representative of that 
foody. Consequently it will be forwarded to the Committee 
•by the National Food Reform Association for the use of 
Sir Henry Norman and his colleagues, one of whom, 
Mr. Charles Bathurst, M.P., is a prominent member of 
the Association. The Chairman of the Parliamentary 
Committee of this body is Mr. J. S. Fletcher, M.P., and 
as soon as Parliament reassembles meetings will be held in 
•connection with — among other matters — the promised legis- 
lation dealing with the question of milk. It is desirable 
in this connection that the fact should not be lost sight 
of that the Select Committee was " appointed to consider 
and inquire into the question of the sale of patent and 
proprietary medicines and medical preparations and 
appliances, and advertisements relating thereto." By no 
stretch of the imagination can the terms of the reference 
be construed to include infants' foods, which, we under- 
stand, is the object of the National Food Reform 
Association. 



Principally Profits. 

It is surprising how comparatively uninteresting to 
■chemists and druggists as such the reports of the Depart- 
ment of Inland Revenue have become since the Customs 
and Excise took over some of its work three years ago. 
Among that work were medicine-stamps and administra- 
tion of the Statutes dealing with the sale of stamped 
•medicines. It now appears that this subject alone gave 
pharmaceutical interest to the Report of the Commis- 



sioners of Inland Revenue, for the uppermost feeling in 
our mind, when perusing the report for 1911-12 with a 
view to gleaning from it points of pharmaceutical interest, 
has been that it almost requires an apology to mention 
it in The Chemist and Druggist. Estate-duties, Cor- 
poration-duty, Stamp-duties, Land-tax, Inhabited-house 
Duty, and Income-tax are the subjects chiefly dealt with, 
and chemists and druggists lurk somewhere in the report, 
but as such they are not manifest. Certainly there are 
no chemists' assistants among the eight employes in the 
United Kingdom whose incomes are between 5,000/. and 
10.000/. a year, nor is the gentleman whose wages amount 
to 10,764?. connected with the drug-trade. As a matter 
of fact, we do not know, and we feel sure that even 
"Felix" and " Infelix " know no such person in phar- 
macy. It is notable, by the way, that while nine 
employes with incomes over 5,000?. a year are assessed 
under Schedule D, 161 are assessed under Schedule E, 
which means that they are Government, corporation, and 
public company officials. These 161 share 1,529,149/. 
among them. There are many more facts in the tables 
which induce reflection — e.g., about 236,000 individual 
employers pay income-tax on incomes totalling 96,700,000/. 
(from 161/. to 50,000/. or over), and 92,172 employes pay 
similarly on 24,800,000/. within the same limits. The em- 
ployes are, however, engaged by persons, firms, public 
companies, and local authorities ; but the ratio is not so 
wide as one would expect ; roughly, two employed in- 
dividuals pay income-tax for every five individuals who 
are employers. The following are other figures worth 
noting : 

Income-tax paid by 
435,851 persons (excluding employes) on £108,778,289 income 
54,041 firms „ £79,238 434 „ 

41,933 public companies ,,£301.834,995 „ 

11,854 local authorities „ £25,740,707 ,, 

Considering that public companies were not provided for 
by Statute until fifty to sixty years ago it is astounding 
the share they are taking in the business of the nation, 
and it is even more astounding that chemists and drug- 
gists, or their leaders, let such companies grow in 
number within their ranks until 1908 without making an 
acceptable plan for controlling them by legislation. Many 
more reflections less or more germane to the drug-business 
occur to one on glancing through the report, but there 
are other things of stricter trade interest to be got into 
our columns this week. The following table embodies the 
statistics respecting alkali and other works to which 
certificates have been issued during the past decade :

It will be seen that the chemical industry was a trifle 
better last year in England and Ireland, but not in 
Scotland. There is no other chemical reference in the 
report except " salt springs or works and alum works," 
which stand for profits amounting to 95,768/. What that

means the report does not tell. If it is the profits made 
by salt and alum manufacturers, there is a certain salt 
which a pharmacist invites all the world to " see how it 
runs " that has a big share, for it makes about 23.000f. a 
year. 



The World's Quinine. 

Heer Abrahamsohn has recently published, on behalf of 
the Dutch East Indian Association for Promoting the 
Interests of Cinchona Cultivation, a second pamphlet giving 
the results of a further study of quinine-production and 
the use of quinine in malaria. The pamphlet deals only 
with the manufacture of quinine sulphate and takes no 
account of bark used for galenical and similar prepara- 
tions. He states that quinine sulphate is now made by 
sixteen factories, three in Germany, two in Holland, one 
in England, four in France, two in the United States, one 
in Portugal, two in India, and one in Java. The equi- 
valents in quinine sulphate of the purchases of cinchona- 
bark by the German, Dutch, French, and United States 
factories during the last five years (1907-11) have been 
as follows :

The author states that the German factories are united 
in a strong convention controlled by the Gold- und Silber- 
Scheide Anstalt of Frankfort, and that, with the excep- 
tion of the Indian, Java, and Portuguese factories, all the 
others work more or less intimately with the German Con- 
vention. He mentions, for example, that the Netherlands 
Quinine-factory has a dividend guaranteed by the Con- 
vention and that the Amsterdam factory and the English 
factory are both strongly supported. The American fac- 
tories are not controlled by the Convention, but certainly 
work in co-operation with it, and the French factories are 
in a measure dependent on it. The Amsterdam factory 
paid a dividend of 12 per cent, in 1911, but no information 
is available as to the profits of the Convention. The 
Bandoeng factory has bought the following quantities 
(kilos.) of bark in the years 1907-11 : 958,974, 1,171,723, 
1,756,535, 171,225, 1,122,504. In 1907 it paid 9 per cent, 
and in the three following years 10 per cent, dividends. 

Heer Abrahamsohn points out that it is difficult to 
estimate the world's production of cinchona, but states 
that Java has a practical monopoly, and that as the price 
per unit is now unremunerative to some undertakings 
there is certain to be a fall in output. The 
Java bark is practically all sold in Amsterdam, and 
bark from other places in London. The total offers in 
London in 1911 amounted to 487,760 kilos., including 
237,840 kilos, from Java, while the total Java production 
was about 9,000,000 kilos. Taking the best available 
figures, it is estimated that the world's production of bark 
was equivalent to 622,505 kilos, of quinine sulphate in 
1911, of which 598,032 kilos, was Javan. The rest of 
the pamphlet deals with the use of quinine in 
malaria, and points out that the quantities sold by 
retail are small compared with those distributed by 
Governments in campaigns against malaria. In 1908 
the Italian Government made a profit of 769,809 lira by the 



sale of quinine, which it bought at 10 to 11 florins per kilo., 
made into tablets and sold cheaply to the peasants. Refer- 
ences are also made to the effect that the destruction of 
mosquitoes, now being carried on vigorously in many 
tropical countries, is likely to have on the demand for 
quinine, and mention is made of various new remedies 
against malaria. An appendix gives analyses made 
by Van Leersum of (1) quinine made at the Govern- 
ment factories in India, (2) " febrifuge " made at the 
same factory, and (3) Japanese pills used as a preventive 
of fever. The Indian quinine was in yellowish crystals, 
quite unsuitable for ordinary trading purposes, and con- 
tained 70 per cent, of pure quinine. The " febrifuge " had 
the following percentage composition : Quinine, 9.65 ; cin- 
chonidine, 15.8; cinchonine and amorphous alkaloids, 
70.05; impurities, 4.50. The pills consisted entirely of 
cinchonine and a binding material. 



The Dominions Royal Commission. 

In last week's issue (index folio 512) we inadvertently 
named the body before which it is proposed to give 
evidence in regard to drug-culture as the British Empire 
Council of Commerce, instead of the Dominions Royal 
Commission. Lord Inchcape was the President of the 
latter body, but he has resigned and has been succeeded 
by the Right Hon. Arnold Morley. The Commission, 
we understand, was appointed in pursuance of a resolu- 
tion passed at the Imperial Conference of 1911, and con- 
tains the names of several well-known commercial men 
connected with the Colonies. Since its inauguration the 
work ,has mostly been of a preliminary character, but 
we understand this is now completed for the performance 
of its work and that in a few weeks the Commission will, 
reassemble in the United Kingdom to take evidence. By 
its terms of reference the Commission is prepared to> 
receive suggestions from associations or private persons 
in this country as to the possible development of the 
natural resources of the self-governing Dominions and the 
improvement and extension of their trade with each other 
and with the United Kingdom. Among the subjects 
which properly come within the purview of the Commis- 
sion are the following : Strict enforcement of the law re- 
garding trade descriptions ; a British Empire trade-mark ; 
merchandise marks and patent law ; the removal of 
Colonial duties on trade-catalogues ; commercial travellers' 
licences ; the abolition of duties on commercial travellers' 
samples ; and pilferage of imported and exported goods. 
The Commission is precluded from inquiring into or 
receiving evidence as to the effects of Customs or tariff 
laws. 

The Dumb Wife. — When Rabelais was a medical student at 
Montpellier — the. pleasant Southern city still noteworthy as 
the seat of a Faculty of Medicine and School of Pharmacy — 
he wrote for the amusement of the students and professors 
of 1530 an amusing skit entitled "The Comedy ol he who 
Married a Dumb Woman." The Rabelaisian Society at 
Paris, having recently feted the publication of a new edition 
of the author's works, M. Anatole France, the celebrated 
Academician, adapted this play for the circumstance, and 
it was performed before a select audience with great suc- 
cess. M. Botal, the judge, has a dumb wife. He calls in 
M. Oolline, the doctor — assisted by the surgeon and apothe- 
cary — to cure her affliction. They restore her power of 
speech — and after a short experience the judge begs them 
to render her mute as before. " It is impossible." declare 
the men of science, " to prevent a woman talking once she 
has started, but we can render you deaf," and the husband 
accepts this half-remedy. There is little doubt, says M. 
Anatole France, that Moliere drew several features of the 
" Medecin Malgre Lui " from this old anti-feminist farce, 
in which present-day anti-suffragettes should be interested.

Objects and Limitations of Pharmaceutical Education. 

An Address by John Rymer Young, Ph.C, F.C.S. 

Delivered at the Inauguration of the Seventy-first Session of the School of Pharmacy, London, October 2, 1912. 



ON very good literary authority we are informed that 
" one man in his time plays many parts," and I am 
bound to say that my personal experience forces me to 
the conclusion that when a man or woman enters upon 
the pharmaceutical stage he or she is certain to illus- 
trate and confirm that Shakespearean dictum. Forty 
years ago I was a pharmaceutical student within these 
walls, and, in all probability, conducted myself with that 
impropriety and lack of reverence and decorum charac- 
teristic of students in all ages. You will look in vain 
for my name on the tablets of the famous that adorn 
these walls, because it is 
not there. 

'"lis not for me to 

" reason why," 
Perhaps someone had 

blunder' d. 
Now, after playing every 
•conceivable character in 
the repertoire of the 
Pharmaceutical Society, 
including, I am glad to 
say, the pleasant part of 
presenting rewards to 
successful workers so 
gracefully performed 
to-day by the President, I 
-am charged with the 
grave and important role 
•of Official Preacher, and 
am expected to inculcate 
the very educational and 
other virtues which ap- 
pealed so lightly to my 
ethical sense in 1870. 
There may appear to be 
an element of Gilbertian 
humour in selecting me — 
•of all people — to give the 
inaugural address ; but 
perhaps it indicates that 
my friends and colleagues 
recognise that I have now 
reached that stage of 
•existence when the itera- 
tion of " wise saws and 
modern instances ' ' is the 
only mental exercise 
within my declining 
powers. As that terribly 
disconcerting master of 
the art of undressing 
Truth, G. B. Shaw, says, 
the man who cani — does ; 
the man who cannot — 
preaches. No doubt the 




Shavian wisdom was m 
the mind of the Council when I was asked to discourse 
to past, present, and future students of the School of 
Pharmacy gathered here this afternoon, but I must put 
up with the implication of political superannuation so 
subtly and gracefully conveyed to me, and must endeavour 
to convey by verbal (and perchance verbose) media those 
essentials, principles, and truths which, did. fate permit, 
I should like to practise, employ, and illustrate by per- 
sonal example among the younger generations of pharma- 
ceutical aspirants. I cannot do better than occupy the 
hrief period allotted to me by discussing the objects, 
methods, and limitations of what we pharmacists know 
as education, and it is quite probable that the views I 
'may express may not be strictly canonical, for I have 
an inborn and lifelong objection to bind myself by

arbitrary rules or generally accepted opinions on every- 
thing in general, or anything in particular, especially 
when those canons ars in the nature of fetters for the 
intellect. But whether my words square with convention 
or whether they do not, they will, at any rate, possess 
the merit of personal sincerity — I do claim that ! — a 
quality every student should put into his work and every 
human being into his life. The objects of true pharma- 
ceutical education are, in my view, not to evolve a 
creature which can swallow unlimited syllabuses, digest 
them with apparent ease, and convert them into brilliant 

examination replies, but 
to produce worthy phar- 
macists who shall be, by 
their art and by their 
personality, respect-com- 
pelling citizens of the 
community they desire to 
serve. Some of the most 
egregious asses in crea- 
tion are to be met with 
among the scholastic suc- 
cesses of modern educa- 
tional life — they are 
plentiful enough, good- 
ness knows — and if I 
thought the time, money, 
and energy expended by 
generations of pharma- 
ceutical Councillors on 
this School of Pharmacy 
of ours merely meant the 
subsidising of machine- 
turned medicine handlers. 
I should grieve over 
every hour and coin and 
effort recorded in the 
seventy-one years of 
official history. Fortu- 
nately for those who have 
emerged from the pupil- 
age state, as well as for 
those who are now enter- 
ing upon their technical 
work here, the Blooms- 
bury professors and their 
demonstrators manage to 
impart something more 
than the contents of text- 
books into the minds of 
their charges, and some- 
thing more than mechani- 
cal skill into the manipu- 
lative work taken in the 
laboratories — I mean some 
of the character, enthu- 
siasm, and personality of 
the teacher, so that the danger of turning out veneered 
specimens of pharmaceutical donkeyhood is greatly 
eliminated. One cannot sit at the feet of a Lancashire 
professor of chemistry without catching some of the 
higher qualities of manhood inseparably associated with 
the neighbourhood of Manchester (near Warrington, 
please note) ; nor could anyone conceive a session passed 
with our Professor of Pharmaceutics that did not make 
for much added common sense for the fortunate student. 

The Policy of the Pharmaceutical Society 
from the very first has been educational, in its best and 
most rational sense, and during the early years of its 
existence that policy was one which commended itself to 
high and low in the calling. I am sadly afraid it is

THE CHEMIST AND DRUGGIST 



October 5, 1912 



not universally so now. A growing number are always 
clamouring for what is sometimes called a " bread-and- 
butter " policy, which, being interpreted, means a policy 
of Light exertion and quick returns. I verily believe that 
the high priests of that policy would not be averse to 
exchanging their status as registered persons for the pos- 
sibility of a slightly increased commercial profit. The 
general standard of luxury having risen so high, it is not 
surprising that pharmacists find the profits of yore inade- 
quate to maintain the comforts demanded by modern 
convention. Of course, someone or something must be 
blamed for this condition of things, and so "education " 
comes to be regarded and described as a taking of the 
financial bread from the pharmaceutical mouth. But it 
is no more reasonable than it would be to blame a 
Government Department for a wet summer. Much diver- 
sity of opinion exists as to the necessity for all the 
training and drudgery imposed by the Society's examina- 
tion requirements. " Why should a man be forced to 
spend three years' hard labour in grinding for a qualifica- 
tion to fit him for the retailing, at cost price or there- 
abouts, packed parcels of George Washington's Curative 
Compound? " asks one set of inquirers. "Over-training 
and scholarship spoil a man for business," is the dogma 
of another set. " Teach the young men to make a good 
living instead of dosing them with super science," advise 
a third set of the practical — or so-called practical — school. 
But what does it all mean but unreflective protest against 
the inexorable fact that "art is long " and that there is 
nr. short cut to remunerative excellence in any vocation. 
Preparation is the only sure basis of success. As a matter 
of fact, if the "bread-and-butter" school only knew it, 
there is no better policy for commanding commercial 
success than rational education. I do not mean the 
mechanical teaching of dexterity that makes a man into 
a smart substitute for machinery, but the development 
and cultivation of mental and moral faculties that enable 
an average mortal eventually to fill his destiny in the 
work-a-day world, and become " the master of his fate — 
the captain of his soul." 

Education should be a Guiding of Existing Powers 
to their highest forms of expression, not the mere grafting 
of dead fact upon the tree of life ; but in modern practice 
it too often means the substitution of conventional for- 
muke for the natural exercise of the thinking and reason- 
ing faculties. Thinking is, thank God, not an exact 
science, and ought not to be treated as such. Its domain 
commences where science (by which I mean exact know- 
ledge) ceases, and there are no finite borders within its 
realms. The courses of study to which a student submits 
himself should be simply regarded as the alphabet of 
thought — the ABC which will enable him in due time 
to become articulate and express his personality in the 
calling he has chosen — to exercise, in fact, the power of 
allowing his natural self to dominate his artificially 
acquired accomplishments. As Sir Thomas Browne says, 
in language described by a distinguished physician and 
writer as more admirable than anything in English litera- 
ture, " Every man truly lives only so long as he acts his 
nature or in some way makes good the faculties of him- 
self." Depend upon it, if a student is so trained that 
his personality remains mute under the burden of parti- 
ally digested data, he will, and can, be nothing more 
than a servant to his memory, however brilliant his 
examination record may be. Therefore, I implore every 
6tudent to be a master of his knowledge rather than 
allow his facts to enslave his mental and intellectual out- 
look — in fact, scholastic pabulum should be absorbed as 
physical luncheons are; that is to say, to "keep up the 
tabernacle." It is the material from which thought may 
be developed, and is no more intended to dominate reason 
than the restaurant is to determine the policy of life. 
If either gets the upper hand it is bad for the student, 
for he becomes either a pedant or an epicure, and I do 
not know which is the more contemptible or useless of the 
two — both are abominations. If this conception of train- 
ing and scholarship can be adopted by those destined 
for a pharmaceutical career, and if they mould all the 
energies of which they are capable into methods for 
giving effect to the conception in their studies, then most 



assuredly will it be found that education is no expensive- 
and useless vanity, but the best commercial asset a busi- 
ness man can possess. The modern idea of life is repre- 
sented to be a mad hustle for money. This may perhaps 
be a fair representation, I do not know — but what I do 
say is that if it is ordained that man must henceforth 
coin his brain in drachmas, there is only one successful 
minting process, and that is the one in which rational 
education is the main transmuting agency. Before turn- 
ing to the limitations of education I should like to voice 
a warning to those embryo Galens, Greenishes, and 
Tildens who add dignity and picturesqueness to those 
benches on the left. Don't overdo your work — this- 
caution is probably superfluous, but don't. 
" Run if you like, but try to keep your breath : 
Work like a man, but don't be worked to death." 

In other words, let football and other recreative delights 
alternate judiciously with the more exhausting pleasures 
of quantitative analysis, so that with the aid of this 
happy blending of opposing joys you will not only do the 
right things in after life, but what Buskin thought more 
important, you will enjoy doing them. Now as to limita- 
tions, if you are not already feeling a desire to place 
one on me. Education, like the brain ointment of the 
market-place quack, cannot do everything — there must be 
something to work upon ! It has been said that " he who 
would bring back the wealth of the Indies must first 
carry out the wealth of the Indies," which, being trans- 
lated, means that what you get from the class, lecture, or 
laboratory bench depends very considerably upon what 
you bring to it. To treat the School of Pharmacy as an 
automatic machine into which guineas are put into the 
slot in the hope of pulling out a certificate of qualification 
as to invite disappointment and all the attendant evils 
of misplaced confidence — nothing can come from nothing ; 
but put into the educational crucible the best of the 
crude, untutored forces of yourselves, and whether a 
statutory qualification results or not you will emerge with 
an invaluable possession that will last while life does — 
the competent skill and knowledge to employ wisely 
whatever faculties you may have been endowed with. 
Is that not worth money, 0 ye votaries of "bread-and- 
butter " worship ? 

The Moral 

that I desire to point is one that is applicable to us all ; 
for are we not as a class, nay, even as a nation, drifting 
into the habit of expecting too much from others — from 
the Society, from the Government, from the schoolmaster 
— and too little, much too little, from ourselves ? The- 
moral is, trust not to vicarious salvation, but earn it by 
personal worthiness and individual effort. Another limi- 
tation of education is that it cannot supply those finer 
shades of courteous and civil bearing to which we give 
the name of " breeding." I do not believe that " manners 
make the man," for who has not met with polished 
ninnies ? — there are plenty about — but I do hold strongly 
that a courteous, sincere, and respectful habit in one's 
relations to others is a very powerful adjunct to the- 
armoury of weapons with which one has to fight the 
difficulties of commercial or professional life. Knowledge 
does not furnish such an addition, nor can it be obtained 
from the Turveydrops of to-day; it can only be acquired,, 
and then perhaps unconsciously, by constant association 
with the Bayards of the community in which one's work 
and one's play is done. It is a contagious virtue, and 
I commend in the strongest possible terms the value of 
choosing for colleagues in school or in life those who carry 
the bright outward signs of inherent good breeding and' 
good manners. 

I do not wish to weary you by running through the 
whole category of limits to which education is subject — 
Heaven knows it is a longish one — but I desire to touch 
lightly upon one more. All the schools of pharmacy in 
the universe cannot guarantee to the best of its graduates 
the gratitude of the public when business life has com- 
menced. Pharmacists need not look for gratitude for,, 
or even recognition of, the public services they render, 
for they will not get it. Three-score years of persistent 
endeavour to fit themselves for the position of trustees 
of the public safety have left them indistinguishable, for

all practical purposes, from the mass of unqualified 
adventurers in the domain of pharmacy with which this 
great and free (and foolish) country is swarming. Why, 
even a brand-new, enlightened, up-to-date State system 
of Insurance, admirable as it may be in principle, places 
on a dispensing level a man like your President and the 
man who for three years has juggled with a few stock 
mixtures in a rural surgery ! Could anything be more 
grotesque? No, there are no laurel wreaths for phar- 
macists ; there is no popular applause or reward from 
the exercise of pharmaceutical virtue as inculcated here 
in our School, and if any would-be student is so consti- 
tuted as not to be able to exist unless placed in the 
draught of the aura pojmlaris I should advise him to get 
his money back from the Secretary, if he can, and flee 
from the precincts of Bloomsbury to the region sacred to 
the profession. But do we want the unstable rewards of 
the gallery when we can command by courage, sincerity, 
and straight dealing the respect and confidence of the 
people in the midst of whom we have our temporary, and 
temporal, pitch ? Personally I do not think we do, for 
with the belief of one's fellows in one's integrity and 
veracity all that is worth anything will come in due 
sequence, even unto adequate remuneration. It seems 
necessary that I should bring these thoughts into my 
remarks, as my experience as a past-President brought 
me into contact with many pathetic instances of the 
Society being blamed for the ingratitude of a locality 
towards a hopelessly impossible chemist and druggist. 

I have already said that the policy of the Pharma- 
ceutical Society has always been, and still is, educational, 
and for this there is occasion to be grateful ; but we cannot, 
of course, afford to ignore the fact that there is a com- 
mercial aspect of affairs that demands consideration, and 
in this, quite naturally, your professors and School are 
powerless to help you. It must not be forgotten that 
nowadays capital is absolutely necessary in establishing 
and developing a good sound business. Of course, it was 
always so, more or less ; but more, much more now than 
ever before. I am fully aware that it does not require 
any great strain on the exchequer in order to dispense 
the average prescription, and you may have satisfied the 
Board of Examiners as to your fitness for that work, but 
you have yet to satisfy a critical and often very unreason- 
able, sceptical public as to that same fact — a much more- 
difficult task, I assure you — and to do this you will need 
tact, perseverance, enterprise, patience, and time. In 
addition, and quite as essential, you must have a well- 
equipped pharmacy in a good, likely position. 

Obviously All This Means Money. 

I do not forget that many excellent businesses have 
been built up the proprietors of which commenced with 
practically nothing in the way of pecuniary advantages. 
All honour to these men of grit and pluck. On the other 
hand, the fact cannot be overlooked that there are 
instances, familiar to us all, where with capital ample, 
position good, pharmacy quite first-class, and introduction 
influential, yet withal the owners thereof seem to have 
made a wretched botch of things. I am conscious of all 
this, but I am not dealing with the exceptional and 
abnormal, but with the rank and file, with the majority, 
the normal ; and I repeat that unless furnished with 
a fair amount of the needful the budding pharmacist is 
terribly handicapped. In such circumstances the game, 
in my opinion, is not worth the candle. 

It is common knowledge that not more than 25 per 
cent, (probably not so many) of the chemists in business 
in this country find it possible to extract a decent living 
out of pharmacy pure and simple, and by that I mean 
dispensing and the sale of poisons ; the rest of us, in- 
cluding myself, have to augment our incomes as best 
we can by side-lines and other departments, legitimate 
and appropriate enough, but it must always be remembered 
that we are thus brought into direct and severe compe- 
tition with huge resources and unlimited capital. 

Will you now forgive me making an appeal, a final 
appeal, to the young men and women who enter upon 
their finishing course to-day ? There is nothing so likely 
to return a henvy dividend upon a small capital outlay 
of trouble as the cultivation of a habit of clearness in 



speech, in writing, and in thought. Half the troubles 
of the business world would not occur if everyone spoke 
with knowledge and directness, and wrote his epistles 
so that the recipient can decipher and understand them 
readily. May I recall the story of a celebrated ecclesiastic 
who was trying to read a letter from Dean Stanley ? 
" This is a lovely letter of Stanley's,'' said the dignitary, 
sweetly, ' ' but so far I have managed to read only one 
word, and that looks like 'damn.' " In regard to clear 
thinking, I do sincerely hope you will not confine your 
powers of concentration to the detection of subtle differ- 
ences between COOH and CH0 2 , but will extend them 
to political and other extra-pharmaceutical matters, so 
that future Presidents may not have to face the painful 
experiences I had to wrestle with in 1908, when many 
registered men appeared to be incapable of grasping the 
radical difference between economic adjustment and 
cowardly surrender, betwixt equitable compromise and 
disgraceful betrayal. I want the future pharmacist to 
be a man of the world and a man of sense ; firm without 
narrowness, progressive without rashness. I want him to 
become what Professor Remington said of Michael 
Carteighe : 

" A man whose soul is pure and strong, 

Whose sword is bright and keen, 
Who knows the splendour of the fight, 

And what its issues mean." 

So shall he become a power in the land, a pride to 
pharmacy, and a blessing to his day and generation. 




3In. Henry W. Bush. 



A Twenty-fifth Anniversary. 

The twenty-fifth anniversary of the foundation of Messrs. 
Henry W. Bush & Co., Ltd., druggists' sundries manufac- 
turers, Rembrandt Works, Commercial Street, London, E., 
was celebrated by a dinner gi.ven to the employes by the 
company at the London Tavern, 
Fenchurch Street, E.C., on Octo- 
ber 1. Mr. Henry W. Bush pre- 
sided over the guests, of whom 
about ninety were present, in- 
cluding Mr. G. Hesselmann, 
Alderman Schultze, J. P., Mrs. 
Henry W. Bush, Mr. R. J. Bush, 
Mr. and Mrs. Pegg, Mr. and 
Mrs. Thornton, Mrs. Le Beau, 
Miss H. Smith, Messrs. Firth, 
Phelps. Cecil Walker, Henry 
Walker, J. Alexander, Gimson, 
the Masters Harry and Alan 
Bush. After dinner and the 
loyal toasts there was a pleasant 
interlude, when Mr. S. Thorn- 
ton, one of the directors, on 
behalf of the employes, pre- 
sented Mr. Henry W. Bush with a handsome solid silver rose- 
bowl and an illuminated address conveying hearty congratu- 
lations to the founder of the firm on the attainment of the 
twenty-fifth anniversary and on the prosperity and success 
which had crowned his efforts. The Chairman, in a heartfelt 
reply, gave some interesting reminiscences of his business 
career, alluding to the fact that his first start was in a third- 
floor back office in Basinghall Street, his furniture consisting 
of a second-hand table for which he gave 30s., and a chair 
for which he gave half-a-crown. His " first hit " was in the 
feeding-bottle line, this being the genesis of a business in 
which ultimately he became known as a manufacturer of 
feeding-bottles. Mr. Bush told of the uphill struggle which 
eventually resulted in his success, and dwelt upon the various 
expansions of the business and the number of removals 
necessitated by the increasing prosperity of his undertaking ; 
even at the present time they were cramped for space. The 
toast of " The Office " was proposed by Messrs. Leach and 
Glover, and replied to by Mr. Burton. Other toasts included 
" The Warehouse," " The Ladies," and " The Visitors," 
Alderman Schultze, of Deptford, replying to the latter. The 
Chairman also proposed " The Press," to which a repre- 
sentative of The Chemist and Druggist replied. An excel- 
lent musical programme was rendered between the toasts, 
the talent being supplied by the emploves. including Misses 
Rose Clements, A. Bird. C. M. Bell. E. M. Piper, and B. 
Schmidt, and Messrs. W. H. Hutchinson, C. J. Burton, 
H. Price, H. Glo.ver, A. C. Guy, G. J. Le Beau, C. Odell, 
H. Leech, W. G. Griffin, G. H. Kirk, H Glover, A. Cham- 
berlain, and F. Masters. The evening was brought to a 
close at a late hour with the National Anthem and " Auld 
Lang Syne."

THE CHEMIST AND DRUGGIST 



October 5, 1912 



London Medical Exhibition. 



THE eighth Medical Exhibition organised by the 
" British and Colonial Druggist," which is being held 
this week at the Royal Horticultural Hall, Westminster, 
London. S.W.. differs little from its immediate prede- 
cessors in size and arrangement. Nearly all the exhibitors 
confine their exhibits to staple products with established 
reputations. A feature emerging this year is the extend- 
ing use of petroleum as a laxative intestinal lubricant. 
Nerve-foods are also greatly in vogue, as also restoratives 
with port as a basis. General displays of 

Pharmaceutical Products 
-are much in evidence, as these notes testify. 

The Bayer Co., Ltd., display an interesting selection 
of their pharmaceutical products, including cycloform, a 
new local anaesthetic and antiseptic, and synthetic 
bydrastinine hydrochloride. Burroughs Wellcome & 
Co. always strike a keynote of elegance with their 
■diversified display. On this occasion particular atten- 
tion is being paid to ergamine as a uterine stimu- 
lant, and ernutin as "ergot idealised." "Tabloid" 
bismuth-subsantonate compound is a new stable form of 
the vermifuge santonin, while tabloid epinine compound 
is the latest development of epinine therapy as applied 
to throat-affection in -which the capillaries are congested. 
" Vaporole " products and a full range of compact hypo- 
dermic cases and medicine-chests are also exhibited. 
Corbyn, Stacey & Co., Ltd., have a bright display of fine 
galenicals, the most interesting of which are elixir lecithin 
c. pepsina, gelsemoids (neuralgia tablets), enzyme cordial, 
nebula atropinas eo., and saxol (purified petroleum laxa- 
tive). Duncan, Flockhart & Co. give prominence to 
organo-therapeutical remedies, including primary vaccines, 
tuberculin dilutions, and gland products. The materials 
from which pituitary fluid is made are on view, the high 
price of ergot favouring the more extended use of pituitary 
extract. " Delectol " is a purified petroleum in confection- 
form for use as a laxative. A fine display of anaesthetics 
fills the back of the stand. William Martindale occupies 
a recess with a comprehensive collection of specialities, 
the centre of which is occupied by copies of the " Extra 
Phai'macopceia." Other items well to the fore are tylcalcin 
and tyllithin, lecithin emulsion, glycetracts, combinations 
of glycerophosphates with dried milk and with confection 
of malt, and the vaso-dilators, erythrol and mannitol 
nitrates. Oppenheimer, Son & Co.. Ltd., draw special 
attention to the advantages of pulverettes over compressed 
tablets and massed pills, as well as to the use of 
" Collosols " as bactericides. The " Optimus " is a new 
all-glass nebuliser. Parke, Davis & Co. typify modern 
therapy at their handsome stand. Thyroprotein is a 
standardised thyroid product, which is claimed to be the 
most powerful yet offered. Quinine and urea (for anaes- 
thesia) and scarlet-red ointment (5 per cent.) are prepara- 
tions prepared to meet comparatively new phases in medi- 
cine. Soft mass chocolate-coated pills and P.D. emulsions 
impress the visitor as being pharmaceutical^ perfect. 
Demonstrations are also in progress showing theamylolytic 
activity of taka-diastase. James Woolley, Sons & Co., 
Ltd., give pride of place to their new super-malted food 
and to " Valkasa " tonic nerve-food. Solutio sodas 
phenatis is an old favourite also well to the fore. Jecoval, 
ergoval, boval trusses, and aseptic sprays are other note- 
worthy products displayed. C. J. Hewlett & Son. Ltd., 
have a comprehensive display of their original prepara- 
tions, new sprays and vaporisers, and new surgical instru- 
ments. Deliciol is a soft paraffin in strawberry or 
chocolate flavours, for use as an intestinal lubricant. 
Haemorrhaline is an improved pile-ointment. Fairchild 
Bros. & Foster devote much space to panopepton, pep- 
sencia, peptogenic milk-food, and laibose. " Enemose," 
which contains 60 per cent, of nutritive solids, is a new 
nutrient for colonic administration; and " Oxyntin," 
another novelty, is dry hydrochloric-acid albumen. The 
Charles H. Phillips Chemical Co. are insistent upon the 
pre-eminent virtues of "milk of magnesia" as the per- 
fect antacid and aperient. The firm's new advertising 
novelty is a profile-map of the Panama Canal. Savory & 



Moore, Ltd., have a well-arranged exhibit in which their 
foods and peptomsed preparations predominate. Fructo- 
lax (hydrocarbon laxative), fructole (the new chemical 
food), and aphrodont (dental foam) are coming in for much 
attention. A. & M. Zimmermann display a wide range of 
therapeutic substances, novatophan (a tasteless form of 
atophan), pellidol (a stainless scarlet-red), and azodolen 
(pellidol with iodolen) being the principal new medica- 
ments. 

Many firms confine their exhibits to comparatively 

Specialised Products. 
John Bell, Hills & Lucas, Ltd., occupy most of their 
space with the profit-bearing foods ceregen and zoegen. 
The " Cresyl-Bell " yaporiser and an antiseptic floral 
spray are also shown. John Bell & Croyden, Ltd., have 
on view a model of their ideal apparatus for sterilising 
dressings. The British Drug Houses, Ltd., give pride 
of place to sempules, this new form of suppository being- 
advocated as of special value for treating haemorrhoids. 
The uses of herogen, eau de mente de Dalmahoy, Esvach 
water, and Boyd's banana malted food are the other items 
in the propaganda at this stall. An addition to the arma- 
mentarium of the British Organotherapy Co., Ltd., is 
ovamammoid compound (Lowenthal). Cerebos, Ltd., 
descant upon the purity of the materials which compose 
their table-salt. Thomas Christy & Co. have on show 
many of the well-known preparations for which they are 
agents. They are extolling chiefly the virtues of glyco- 
thymoline, pertussin, Hoff's malt-extract, pepto-mangan 
(Gude), vitogen (dressing powder), lysoform, and Pyshan 
points tanninless tea. Hoffmann-La Roche Chemical- 
works, Ltd., have a fine display of alkaloids. Omnopon 
(opium alkaloids) and thiocol (water-soluble guaiacol pro- 
duct) are to the fore here. The Jelloid Co. have a dainty- 
stand at which the propaganda of iron jelloids as "the 
reliable tonic " is being carried on. Jeyes' Sanitary Com- 
pounds Co., Ltd.. have a big representation of cyllin, the 
non-toxic bactericide, and its congeners. Menley & James, 
Ltd., concentrate chiefly on malt-glidine, their new nerve- 
restorative and food-tonic, and on iodex, their stainless 
iodine application. Medical men are also being impressed 
with the advantages resulting from the lowering of the 
prices of iodoglidine, bromoglidine, arsan, and luesan. 
The Ozo Medicated Air Co., Ltd., are pointing out to 
visitors the advantages of their medicated inhaler in hay- 
fever, asthma, and influenza. Pearson's Antiseptic Co., 
Ltd., enthuse upon the advantage of pacolol, a saponified 
cresol disinfectant which mixes clear with water, for sur- 
gical purposes. Hycol, on the other hand, yields a milky 
emulsion. Both have guaranteed carbolic coefficients. 
E. T. Pearson & Co., Ltd., are interesting medical men 
in their galactagogue, lactagol (cottonseed extract). They 
also show a full series of vasogen preparations. Petol, 
Ltd., are extolling the advantages of their peat prepara- 
tion in skin-diseases. Regulin, the patented combination 
of agar-agar and cascara sagrada, is shown in scale, powder, 
and biscuit form by the Regulin Syndicate, Ltd. The 
last-named is new and is designed for use by invalids and 
children. A. Wulfing & Co., besides exhibiting their 
staples, sanatogen, formamint, and albulactin, call the 
attention of medical men to their new product cystopurin, 
or hexamethylenetetramine sodium acetate, for use in 
affections of the urinary tract. The Saccharin Corpora- 
tion, Ltd., put forward trivalin (morphine, caffeine, and 
cocaine valerianates) as an anodyne which is not a soporific, 
and novocaine, their non-irritant local anaesthetic. Tulloch's 
gold alloy is also shown here. This open formula dental 
alloy is characterised by absence of copper, low percentage 
of zinc, and high proportion of tin. Pergenol continues 
to gain favour for sterilising instruments, as it does not 
affect their polish. Stern & Co. show their pumiline 
pine-oil preparations, as well as the new creosote compound 
for inhaling. G. H. Zeal demonstrates his ingenious 
" Repello " clinical thermometer. The extrusion of the 
mercury from the flattened bulb at the top is due to the 
flexibility of the tbin glass, a point which mystifies many, 
who attribute it rather to the heat of the hand. The re- 
setting case for ordinary clinicals also attracts attention. 
Chas. Zimmermann & Co. are exciting the curiosity of 
medical men with their exhibit of radium and

radio-active preparations. A dark-room permits I'emonstra- 
tion of the activity of radiogen drinking-water by means of 
a suitable screen, while the Elias electroscope on view 
permits its strength to be measured with great accuracy. 
Pasta Liermann is a new aseptic bolus-paste for surgeons' 
use. Lysol is also a big feature here. 

Appliances and Apparatus. 
James Barker has since last year made ingenious 
improvements in his vibrators, allowing a much wider 
range as regards frequency and strength of the vibrations. 
Hawksley & Son show several types of sphygmometers, 
Dr. Mackenzie's polygraph being the most important of 
these. Schall & Son are specialists in electrical apparatus 
for z-ray therapy, cautery, and ionic medication. Salt 
& Son, besides a selection of surgical appliances and 
kidney-belts, show some orthopaedic appliances made in 
duralumin. Walton & Curtis exhibit the "Curtis" 
abdominal support and " Walcur " elastic hosiery. 

Foods. 

Cadbury Bros., Ltd., titillate the visitor's palate to 
advantage with dainty samples of their chocolate confec- 
tions. Horlick's Malted Milk Co. show how their 
invigorating product should be mixed secundum artem. 
Hygiama Foods Co. 'are impressing on physicians the 
moderate cost of their hygiama and infantina, when their 
high content of proteids and phosphates are taken into 
consideration. Liebig's Extract of Meat Co., Ltd., re- 
vitalise visitors with oxo dispensed in dainty cups, while 
at the same time oxo cubes and nursing oxo are introduced 
to one's notice. Bovril, Ltd., and Virol, Ltd., have a 
joint display of their products. Pascon, the digested 
albumen and fibrin of meat, is to be put on the market 
shortly by the Pascon Co., who definitely state that it is 
not a meat-extract. Its combina- 
tions include biscuits, nutrient 
(with meat-extract), port, and 
chocolate. St. Ivel, Ltd., prove 
the palatability of visem, their new 
milk casein and lecithin food with 
glycerophosphate of sodium. The 
medical man is also reminded that 
St. Ivel lactic cheese contains the 
lactic bacillus in its natural habi- 
tat. 

Wines and Waters. 
Coleman & Co. are well to the 
fore with their standard tonic wine 
"Wincarnis." H. G. Kingham & 
Co. are desirous of investigation of 
"Me-Malto," their meat-and-malt 
wine, which is guaranteed to be 
made with Alto Douro port. 
Larkin, Ltd., specialise in natural 
wines suitable for invalids, includ- 
ing " Invador " port and " Bon- 
santa " sherry. Stephen Smith & 
Co. lay emphasis on the purchase 
of a new vineyard at Tatachilla. 
which is the largest in South Aus- 
tralia, as further proof of the 
purity and genuine nature of their 
Keystone Burgundy. Hall's wine 
as a restorative, and Carvino as a 
tonic, are also being sampled. 
•Natural mineral-waters are as 

usual well represented. Ingram & Royle, Ltd., show many 
of the mineral waters which they import, those specially 
noticeable being Carlsbad, Contrexeville, Evian-Cachat, 
and Vichy. Friedrichshall water is also shown here and 
at the stand of C. Oppel & Co. E. Del Mar, the agent 
for Vittel water, has a big display of this medicinal table

Cornwall. —The first general meeting of the Cornish 
Pharmacists' Association was held at Truro on Tuesday, 
September 24, Mr. H. H. Cannon (Penzance) in the 
chair. Messrs. Edwards, Northey, Masters, Gee, Williams, 
Cannon, Bond, Pearce, Carter, Roberts, Hocking, and 
W. T. Hall (Secretary) were also present. The Secre- 
tary reported that over forty chemists had replied 
to the circular-letter intimating their willingness to 
join the Association. It was resolved that all mem- 
bers be summoned to the meetings pending the Insurance 
Act being put into full working order. The following officers 
-were elected: President, Mr. A. C. Gee (Redruth); Vice- 
President, Mr. B. Carter (Penzance) ; and Hon. Secretary 
and Treasurer, Mr. W. T. Hall (Truro). Meetings will be 
held at Truro when necessary. The meeting agreed to a 
set of rules and fixed the subscription at 5s. A letter was 
read from Mr. Woolcock with reference to representation 
.on local Insurance Committees, and the Secretary was in- 
structed to ask all members to suggest names of those who 
would be willing to serve on such committees. 

Sewsbury.- The first meeting of the session of the Dews- 
bury Pharmacists' Association was held at the Church 
House, Dewsbury, on September 30, Mr. A. B. Barker 
'(Heckmondwike, President) occupying the chair. There 
were also present Messrs. R. Geldhill and G. N. Gutteridge 
(Dewsbury), J. Day (Savile Town), J. Rhodes (Mirfield), 
:S. N. Pickard (Ossett), W. Blakeley (Birstall), H. Jones 
(Morley), W. Mortimer (Batley), and the Secretary (Mr. 
R. J. H. Day, Thornhill Lees). It was agreed to recom- 
mend the reappointment of the Divisional Secretaries as 
follows: Mr. R. Gledhill, Dewsbury division; Mr. S. N. 
Pickard, Morley division; and Mr. A. B. Barker, Spen 
Valley division. It was reported that Mr. W. J. Uglow 
Woolcock (Organising Secretary of the Pharmaceutical 
Society) would visit the Association on October 22. and 
arrangements were made for the meeting, which will lie 
held at the Church House, and tea will be served afterwards 
at the Kiosk Cafe. Mr. R. Gledhill gave an interesting 
report on the British Pharmaceutical Conference at Edin- 
burgh, which he attended as the Association's delegate. A 
discussion on "Insurance Matters" was opened by Mr. 
Pickard, who is a member of the West Riding Insurance 
Committee. He observed that negotiations are still pro- 
ceeding with the doctors, and a reasonable settlement would 
probably be arrived at soon. They were all hoping the 
original intention of the Chancellor of the Exchequer would 
be effected, and the separation of dispensing and prescribing 
would become an absolute fact ; and they were looking for- 
ward to Mr. Lloyd George adhering to the principle that 
no dispensing should be done except by qualified chemists. 
When the negotiations with the doctors had concluded, then 
would be the time for the struggliner chemists to come on 
the scene and demand their rights. Mr. Pickard went on to 
say that the District Committees would shortly be formed, 



and he urged the necessity of chemists' associations selecting 
men for election on those committees. The names of the 
persons selected should be forwarded to the pharmaceutical 
representative on the Divisional Committee, so that they 
could be nominated when the opportunity arose. He men- 
tioned that the West Riding Committee had already dealt 
with several cases of consumption, and the committee is 
negotiating for a building for the use of tuberculosis patients. 
A long discussion followed, one of tho chief points raised 
being that of emergency cases. It was generally agreed 
that chemists would be defeating their own ends if they 
raised difficulties in the way of dealing with such cases, 
and that the better plan would be for chemists in one area 
to make arrangements whereby each would undertake in 
turn the responsibility of dealing with cases which happen 
in the night. 

Dorsetshire.— On Wednesday, September 25, a meeting 
of Dorset pharmacists was held at the Antelope Hotel,

J. W. Cussons; Committee, Messrs. W. B. Beach, A. F. 
Burnett, F. Hancock, and T. G. Aitkin. A set of rules was 
discussed and adopted. It was suggested that meetings 
should be held at Dorchester, Poole, and Sherborne at times 
which the President and Hon. Secretary might consider 
desirable or necessary. Messrs. J. A. Havnes and H. Lewis 
were nominated for election to the District Insurance Com- 
mittee for the Borough of Poole, Mr. F. Hancock for the

tion under the National Insurance Act, explaining the 
gravity of the situation and what had been done by chemists' 
representatives. A discussion ensued, and the meeting re- 
solved to support the action of the Joint Committee.

ness. The Pharmaceutical Society's Federation Scheme

The prices given in this section are those obtained by importers or 
manufacturers for bulk quantities or original packages. To these 
prices various charges have to be added, whereby values are in 
many instances greatly augmented before wholesale dealers 
receive the goods into stock, after which much expense may be 
incurred in garbling and the like. Qualities of chemicals, drugs, 
oils, and many other commodities vary greatly, and higher 
prices than those here quoted are charged for selected qualities 
of natural products even in bulk quantities. Retail buyers 
cannot, therefore, for these and other reasons, expect to 
purchase at the prices quoted here. 

42 Cannon Street, London, E.C., October 3. 

BUSINESS shows some improvement, with the bulk of 
price-changes favouring sellers. Heavy chemicals con- 
tinue active, both on home and export account : but the 
higher prices asked for several important products for 
next year prevent the fulfilment of contracts. Acetone is 
very firm, on the rumours of war in the East ; arsenic is 
again higher, especially for forward delivery. Ammonia 
salts continue strong, with the exception of sulphate, 
which is easier. Citrate, tartaric acid, and cream of tartar 
present no change. The long anticipated advance in san- 
tonin by 4?. 3(7. took place this week. Morphine has been 
marked down 3(7. in makers' prices current. Opium is a 
■"nervy " market, being dominated by the political situa- 
tion iii the Balkan States, and buyers are holding off. So 
far no effect has been shown on prices of Turkish produce 
as a result of the alarming reports as to expected hosti- 
lities. Quicksilver is weak, with lower prices quoted by 
second-hands. Ergot is very firm, with a scarcity of offers 
from primary markets. Vanilla was 1-?. to 2s. cheaper at 
auction, and cloves have advanced sharply. In essential 
oils, clove has advanced 2(7., ; and sandalwood is about 6(7. 
higher. Lemon and bergamot are unaltered, with orange 
.a trifle easier. Eucalyptus remains firm, and there is little 
prospect of cheaper prices this winter as regards B.P. 
oils. Star-anise oil has further advanced on spot owing to 
temporary scarcity. The principal changes are as under :

Increased Buchu Tax. 

Before commencing his sale of buchu at the London 
drug-auction to-day (Thursday) Mr. W. S. Phillips 
.(Bowyer & Bartleet) read a cable that had been received 
by a firm of importers to the effect that the Cape Govern- 
ment had raised the tax on the collection of buchu on 
Crown lands from Is. 6(7. to 2s. 6(7. per lb. It should be 
noted that the collection of buchu on Crown lands is con- 
fined to the months of January and February only, and 
the increased tax is likely to eventually affect the price of 
round leaves to the extent of Is. per lb. As the bulk of 
the "oval"' leaf is not collected on Crown lands, and may 
be gathered at any time, the price is not likely to be 
affected by the increased tax. 

Heavy Chemicals. 

There is considerable activity at all the main centres of the 
heavy-chemical industry, and the market generally has a 
firm tone. Prompt business both for home and export is 
good, and in many departments a very fair forward business 
is also being done : in fact, buyers seem to be closing more 
readily this year than usual. Prices are firm, and where 



changes seem likely the tendency is upwards, though the 
advances are not in all cases sufficient to cover the present 
increased costs of manufacture. 

Sulphate of Ammonia is quiet, with nearest figures as 
follows : Beckton, prompt, 25 per cent, ammonia guaran- 
teed, 147. 2s. 6(7. ; London terms, 137. 15s. ; Leith, 147. 10s., 
January-June, 147. 13s. 9(7. to 147. 15s. ; Liverpool, 147. 8s. 9d. ; 
and Hull, 147. 7s. 6(7. 

Lead-products continue very firm at somewhat higher 
figures than last noted. Present nearest : Dry white lead, 
277. ; red lead, 257. ; pig lead, 237. ; and sheets, 277. 15s. per 
ton, Tyne ; white acetate of lead, 267. 10». to 277. ; brown 
acetate of lead, 257. to 257. 10s. ; nitrate, 287. to 287. 10s. 
per ton. 

Bichromates of Potash and Soda are in fairly good 
demand at unaltered rates. Bichromate of potash, English 
and Scotch deliveries, 3ic7. per lb., less 5 per cent., and 
export 5\d. per lb. net, f.o.b. Glasgow". Bichromate of soda, 
English and Scotch deliveries, 3(7. per lb., less 5 per cent., 
and export 2|(7. per lb. net, f.o.b. Glasgow 7 . 

Strontium-products are quietly steady. Precipitated 
carbonate of strontia. 90 to 95 per cent., 117. to 127. 10s. per 
ton, according to quantity, etc. Mineral carbonate of 
strontia, lump, 87 to 91 per cent., 147. ; and smalls, 80 to 
85 per cent., 127. Hydrate of strontia, 97. to 97. 15s. per ton, 
in casks. 

Zinc Salts arc in good average request and steady. Zinc- 
sulphate crvstals, 77. 5s. to 77. 10s. ; and zinc chloride, 
100° Tw. solution, 67. 5s. to 67. 10s. per ton. 

Magnesium Salts are moving well, and prices are well 
maintained. Sulphate, 62s. 6(7. to 70s. per ton : chloride, 
67s. 6(7. to 72s. 6(7. per ton ; and carbonate, 30s. to 35s. 
per cwt. 

Manchester Chemical-market. 

October 1. 

In the export department there is considerable activity in 
hea-vy chemicals, but on home account in this district Lanca- 
shire holidays continue to exercise a rather adverse effect, 
though prices show little or no change on the week. There 
is no news to hand as to the expected revision in prices of 
bleaching-powder and caustic soda, though it may be 
received any day now. It is stated that bleaching-powder 
is unchanged for this year's delivery at 47. 7s. 6(7. per ton, 
but this can scarcely be accepted as authentic, in view of 
the increase in fuel prices which has come into vogue in 
Lancashire during the past week. Sulphate of copper is 
quoted higher at about 257. 12s. 6(7. to 257. 15s. per ton, 
prompt, best brands, delivered Manchester; for delivery this 
year 2s. 6(7. to 7s. 6(7. per ton more is asked, while for 
delivery up to the end of April next year the figure is 10s. to 
12s. per ton more. Borax in request ; 177. per ton for lump. 
Yellow prussiate of potash continues to sell freely, and sal 
ammoniac is in good inquiry, first-quality lump being quoted 
447., second-quality lump, 427., and ground 447. to 467. per 
ton. Alum and ' sulphur steady at full rates. White 
powdered arsenic still brings high prices. Coal-tar products 
show little change. Sulphate of ammonia is quoted 147. 5s. 
to 147. 7s. 6(7. per ton, f.o.r. Manchester. 

London Markets. 

Acetone. — The demand is chiefly for forward delivery, 
and should war break out between Turkey and the Balkan 
States, prices are likely to advance further. 

Anise Oil (Star).— The temporary scarcity on spot has 
led to a further advance, up to 6s. 8(7. having been paid 
for "Red Ship" brand. 

Arsenic is a very firm market on spot at 23s. for 
barrels and 24s. for kegs. The forward position is much 
dearer, and a fair business has been done for delivery next 

y par - 

Balsam Canada in cases is offered at 2s. 8(7. per lb. 
net on spot. 

Bichromates.— The London agents for the Glasgow 
makers announce that they are able to book contracts for 
delivery for the whole of next year at the following prices : 
Bichromate of potash, crystal or granulated, 3^(7. per lb. ; 
bichromate of soda, crystal, granular, or cake, at 3(7. per 
lb., usual conditions, ex wharf London or delivered to 
station. 

Camphor Oil. — White essential is quoted 47s. 6(7. to 50s. 
per cwt. on spot. 

Cantharidin has advanced in consonance with Spanish 
fly, makers quoting 75s. per oz., as against 60s. 

Castor Oil is lower, English make offering at 317. per 
ton for pharmaceutical quality, first pressing at 287. 10s., 
prompt to December delivery at 307., and January to June,

THE CHEMIST AND DEUGGIST 



G7 



1913, at 29?. per ton, irr barrels, delivered free on wharf, 
London. Oil in eases is 50s. per ton extra. Belgian is 
unchanged, first pressing offering at 291. 10s. per ton for 
prompt and forward delivery. In Liverpool the quotation 
for good seconds Calcutta is 3fc?. and Z^d. for first press- 
ing Belgian. 

Clove Oil. — The English distillers have advanced their 
prices by 2d. per lb. to 4s. lid., 12 W. qts. being quoted 
4s. 9d. 

Cocoa-butter. — At the Amsterdam auction on Tuesday, 
Van Houten's A quality realised 80.12c, against 77.80c. 
at the previous sale, and for B quality 72.50c. was paid, 
against 71.11c. at last sale. 

Codeine is firm and unchanged, makers offering the 
pure crystals at 15s. 6d. to 15s. lid. and the hydro- 
chloride and sulphate at 14s. Id. to 14s. 6c/. per oz. net, 
according to quantity. 

Cod-liver Oil. — Our Bergen correspondent writes on 
September 30 that the market is quiet, with several sellers 
of finest non-congealing oil at 70?. per barrel c.i.f. terms. 
In London, market is quiet, with agents quoting from 
70s. to 72s. c.i.f. 

Copper Sulphate is firm at from 251. 7s. 6d. to 25?. 10s. 
for ordinary brands, and 261. 5 s. for March-April 
delivery. 

Ergot remains firm, several dealers complaining of the 
paucity of offers. Russian is quoted about 3s. 8c?. to 
3s. 9d. c.i.f. ; old-crop Spanish has been celling at 5s. 6'/., 
and new at 5s. 9d. per lb., c.i.f. Four bags of wormy 
Spanish were held at 5s. 9d. in the drug-auction. 

Eucalyptus Oil. — Privately 70 to 75 per cent, euca- 
lyptol is quoted for October delivery at Is. 5d. per lb., but 
one leading importer is holding for Is. 8d., there being 
little prospect of cheaper prices this winter. A single case 
of Citriodora was limited at 5s. per lb. in the drug- 
auction. 

Glycerin. — Refiners report the market as quite firm 
for chemically pure, the official rate for 5-ton lots 
naked being 91/. per ton in tins and cases, and 87/. in 
•drums. In further reference to the extract pub- 
lished in the C. & D. last week from the report of the 
British Consul at Marseilles, the prices quoted for the 
various descriptions of glycerin should read "per 100 
kilos.," and not "per ton," as given by the British 
Consul. 

Guinea-grains. — These are cheaper than last quoted, 
fair offering at 55s. to 57s. 6d. per cwt. on the spot. 

Hydrastis. — Spot prices vary from 18s. 6d. to 19s. per 
lb. net, according to quantity. 

Lemon Oil. — Prices quoted from Sicily this week are 
practically unaltered, new-crop oil for November ship- 
ment offering at 8s. 2d., January-March at 7s. 9d., and 
March- April at 7s. per lb. c.i.f. ; other quotations are from 
7s. 4c/. to 7s. 6-^d. c.i.f. ; on the spot, the finest brands 
are quoted 8s. 3c?. to 8s. 6d. 

A Palermo advice dated September 21 states that business 
was again active for spot oil, orders coming in from some 
of the leading consumers, both for immediate shipment and 
for delivery during the coming months. Full prices had to 
be paid, as the available supply is being concentrated more 
and more. Market remains firm with a favourable tendency, 
as it seems that all the requirements abroad from now until 
the beginning of the new crop have not yet been covered. 
For new crop also business was again very brisk, and not 
only local operators, but foreign buyers have sent in large 
orders. The feeling among growers being already so 
strong, this renewed activity could not but influence prices 
further. For shipment last crop is. quoted 8s. and new croo 
7s. 3(7. per lb. c.i.f. London. 

A further Palermo advice, dated September 28, reports 
continued brisk business for both prompt and new-crop 
oil, the buying . being equally distributed between local 
and foreign consumers. With this insistent demand sellers 
have obtained a slight advance on the figures ruling during 
the present week for both prompt and new crop. The 
fluctuations, however, have been slight. For 'shipment the 
last crop is quoted 8s. 2d. and new crop 7s. A^d. per lb. 

Menthol.— Sellers of case lots quote 28s. 6d. spot for 
Kobayashi-Suzuki, and for January-March shipment busi- 
ness has been done in an outside brand at 19s. 3d. c.i.f., 
but since 19s. 6d. is asked. In combination with oil, sellers 
of Kobayashi-Suzuki quote 28s. for October-November, 
and 25s. 6d. c.i.f. for December- January shipment. 



Morphine. — The September list prices of makers show 
a reduction of 3cT. per oz., the quotation for hydrochloride 
powder being 10s. 3c?., and a round quantity 10s. per oz. 

Oils (Fixed). — Linseed is slightly easier on the spot 
at 33s. 6 c?. in pipes and 34s. in barrels. Eajjc is steady 
at 31s. 9c?. for ordinary brown crude, and 33s. 3c?. for 
English refined in casks. Coconut is also steady at 41s. for 
Ceylon and 46s. for Cochin on the spot. Cottonseed is- 
quiet at from 25s. 9c?. to 26s. for crude, 27s. 3c?. for ordinary 
pale refined, and 30s. for sweet refined. Lagos Pcr?»t oil: 
in Liverpool closes at 34s. 3c?. Soya in barrels on the spot 
is quoted at 29s. 6c?., and for China Wood oil 34s. is- 
quoted on the spot, and 34s. 9c?. for September-October 
shipment. Russian Petroleum is quoted at from 7^c?. to> 
7f d. ; ordinary refined American at 8c?. and water-white 
at 9c?. per gal. Turpentine shows a decline of almost Is. 
per cwt. from last week, American on the spot closing at 
30s. 4^c?.. and October-December at 30s. 9c?. per cwt. Colza 
is steady at 36s. per cwt. ex-store in barrels Liverpool. 

Opium. — The primary markets are dominated by the 
precarious political situation in the East, and the tone 
is described as " nervy," buyers not being anxious to 
enter into any contract business. Usual Turkey druggists' 
llj per cent, is offered at 19s. per lb. c.i.f., which is. 
rather easier than our last quotation, and on the spot 21s. 
to 21s. 6c?. is quoted for this test ; soft shipping ls quoted 
22s. to 25s., according to quality. 

Our Smyrna correspondent writes on September 20 that, 
the market has again been active this week, the sales, 
amounting to 45 cases, of which five are for account of 
local and Interior speculators and the balance for England 
and U.S.A. We quote: Old selected extra Karahissar 22s., 
new ditto 21s., and current talequale, as to quality, 17s. 
to 20s. Large holders refused to sell at above figures, firmly 
maintaining the late higher bases. The arrivals in Smyrna 
amount to 1,465 cases, against 690 at same date last year. 

A Constantinople correspondent writes on September 27 
that the sales for the week are 64 cases druggists' quality, o£ 
which eight are for speculators, at 270 to 300 ptrs., and 
40 cases "soft" and Malatias at 300 to 345 ptrs. per oke r 
according to quality ; market is firm. Among the above- 
about 50 cases were for account of the Japanese Govern- 
ment, which has started buying at Constantinople. We do> 
not know exactly how much will be bought, but buying may 
again be resumed next week. Lack of rain in the Interior, 
which is retarding the autumn sowings, brought speculators- 
into the market. 

Orange Oil. — Sicilian oil is neglected, and prices for 
shipment are rather easier. For new crop business has. 
been done at slightly less than previous figures. Sweet 
of the last crop is quoted 8s. 2^6?., new crop 7s. 4|rf., and 
bitter of the last crop 8s. 2^c/. per lb. c.i.f. London. 

An advice from Palermo dated September 28 reports- 
business at unaltered rates for both spot and new crop. 
Sweet of the last crop is quoted 8s. 2^1. and new crop 7s. 5c?. ^ 
while bitter is 8s. 2^d. per lb. c.i.f. London for the last 
crop. 

Otto of Rose. — A considerable quantity of adulterated' 
otto is to be found on the market, such being offered at 
from 45s. upward, according to percentage of adultera- 
tion, but for the finest brands the values are from about 
70s. up to 90s. 6c/. per English oz. Two well-known; 
shippers are offering at from 60s. to 64s. per English oz. 
Buying is of quite a. retail description. 

A telegram has been received to-day (Thursday) by Messrs. 
Chas. Zimmermann & Co. from their princijpals, Messrs. 
Petko Iv. Orozoff et fils, stating that a general mobilisa- 
tion has been declared, and that war is imminent with 
Turkey; no one is allowed to leave Bulgaria. [We may addi 
that two prominent otto of rose distillers are now in' Eng- 
land. — Editor.] 

Peppermint Oil. — American H.G.H. is quoted 15s. 3c7. 
London terms; Wayne County is quiet- at last week's 
prices, several agents being still without offers. Japanese 
is firmer, with spot sales of dementholised Kobayashi at- 
6s. 2c/.. and Suzuki at 6s. to 6s. Id. For arrival, Kobayasht 
for October-November shipment is quoted at 5s. 9d. per lb. 
c.i.f. 

Quicksilver is weak, second-hands having declined to 
7?. 17s. 6c?. — a reduction of 2s. 6d. — while first-hands quote 
8/. 5s. 1 

Quillaia is quiet at 25?. 10s. per ton ex store. Liverpool.

London Drug-auctions. 

At the auctions of first- and second-hand drugs held to-day 
there was a very fair demand. The feature was the offering of 
a large quantity of senna, which sold at firm rates for the 
better grades and at a decline of about gc7. per lb. for the 
common descriptions. Cape aloes being in small supt 
brought an advance of 2s. per cwt., the quality of the 
" firsts " being particularly fine. Buchu is firm, and a fair 
business has been done privately. Sumatra benzoin sold 
steadily, and very firm prices were paid for cardamoms, 
decorticated seed being dearer. Ceylon coca-leaves are 
cheaper, and for calumba prices continue easy for the com- 
mon descriptions. Cascara sagrada sold at steady rates 
compared with the previous auction, and for croton-seed 
an irregular advance was paid. Chiretta is neglected and

quality offered being very good. Lime-juice has, if any- 
thing, an easier tendency. Rhubarb is firm, and for grey

while other descriptions, such as Madagascar, were 
unaltered.

Essential-oil Analysis. 

Neutral v. Acid Sulphite. 

Mr. John C. Umncy, F.C.S., writing with reference to 
Messrs. Hill and Cooking's letter (C . & D., September 28, 
index folio 523), says : "In the suggestions that I have 
made for the unification of processes for commercial valua- 
tion of esesntial oils in the pages of ' The Perfumery and 
Essential-oil Record,' and more recently in a paper written 
in conjunction with Mr. E. J. Parry, and read before 
the Congress of Applied Chemistry in New York, I have 
endeavoured to make it clear that there was likely to be 
considerable difficulty in unifying the analytical processes 
which were desirable for Pharmacopoeias and convenient 
for commercial purposes. I quote the following as indi- 
cating my ideas in this respect : 

We do not lose sight of the fact that the essential oils 
of the various Pharmacopoeias may be selected oils, or under 
certain conditions even not normal ones, and for that reason 
such standardisation needs consideration, as well as the 
standards to be fixed bv such adjustment -of analytical pro- 
cesses. — P. It. (November 1911, p. 249). 

We wish to emphasise that our editorial suggestions were 
put forward rather to obtain uniformity in commercial valua- 
tion than to get analytical accuracy in its strictest chemical 
sense. . . . Perhaps, therefore, we should modify our original 
standpoint and urge uniformity in analytical valuation for 
commercial purposes as a more exact description of what 
appears to us to be an urgent need. — P. B. (December 1911. 
pp. 272-273). 

The whole subject is worthy of more consideration than 
it has yet received, and, wc venture to say, especially in 
connection with the difficulties that may arise from the 
framing of standards for Pharmacopoeias and commerce 
based upon unified analytical methods. To the unification 
of methods there can be no objection, and methods for the 
determination of the odorous or important constituents of 
essential oils should be equally applicable for all purposes, 
although the standards to be based" on them may be different. 
— P. R. (January 1912, p. 3). 

" When Mr. Parry criticised the monographs drafted by 
Mr. Hill and myself for a new British Pharmacopoeia (see 
C. <£• D., September 23, 1911) we (Mr. Hill and myself) 
stated that we failed to see ' how a Pharmacopoeia mono- 
graph for cinnamon oil affects a Mincing Lane monograph 
for cassia oil,' and that is rather the position that I must 
adhere to at the moment. It is difficult to see how the 
unification of analytical processes for all Pharmacopoeias 
and for all commercial valuation can be carried out. It is, 
however, by the consideration of such criticisms as those 
offered by Messrs. Hill and Cocking that finality is likely 
to be reached, and I should welcome — and Mr. Parry 
endorses this wish — that the most careful consideration 
should be given to the utility and accuracy of the sulphite 
and bisulphite methods for valuation of aldehyde-contain- 
ing oils. Reference to ' The Perfumery and Essential-oil 
Record ' of November 1911 shows that this was one of the 
points of importance that I put forward as needing settle- 
ment. I trust that neither this nor any other suggestion 
made by Mr. Parry and myself in our paper read before 
the International Congress of Applied Chemistry will be 
taken as final. Our desire is that every point may be fully 
criticised, and if not endorsed, then not accepted. " 

A Trip in the United States. 

Sir., — Has not Mr. Smallman by his concluding sentence 
fallen into the pit that he has dug for our American 
■cousins? His insularity seems to be on a par with their 



narrow-mindedness, but is their prejudice as marked as 
he would infer ? All Americans I have met over here — ■ 
and they are not a few — have expressed themselves as 
charmed with our country and the reception accorded to 
them ; and, judging from the well-filled trunks they always 
take back with them, our products and manufactures seem 
to be much appreciated by them. The fact that English 
goods are not so largely advertised in the States as Ameri- 
can products are on this side is more a question of the 
heavy protective tariff than any sentimental dislike of 
Britishers and their wares. If English goods could be 
landed in the U.S.A. at prices to compete with American 
manufactures, Mr. Smallman would have a different story 
to tell. With Brother Jonathan the almighty dollar looms 
very largely — so largely that, as your correspondent 
states, he is quite content to surrender his individuality 
in order to increase his profits ; but is he not wise in so 
doing ? We are in business for the very prosaic purpose 
of earning our daily bread. Increased turnover and profit 
combined with reliable goods are what we have to strive 
for. Those with a highly developed bump of originality 
and plenty of spare cash to invest in stock, designs, 
cartons, labels, etc., can possibly afford to give scope to 
their personality and individuality ; but those not so highly 
endowed by nature will no doubt be content, and perhaps 
pleased, to borrow a leaf from the book of their American 
confreres and take advantage of such adventitious aids 
as Rexall and Nyal (not forgetting our own home-grown 
Ucal), if they will help to augment the plus side of the 
profit-and-loss account. Yours truly, 

London, October 2. Cosmopolitan. (68/61.) 

The Rise of Drug-stores : Why ? 

" O wad some power the giftie gie us. 
To see oursels as others sec us ! " 
Sir, — Your correspondent "Felix" seems to require & 
mirror so that he may admire himself. We have heard 
of him on more than one occasion, first as Little Jack 
Horner in the nursery rhyme, and later on as the good 
young man who died. Fancy this vainglorious individual 
being looked up to ! By whom ? and why '! Because he 
is a manager, not because he is a blackleg, and, prayv 
what is necessary to be manager of one of the hide- 
bound company shops ? A mere hewer of wood.' and 
drawer of water at the most. The calling has not lost 
much. Invicta. (21/92.) 

Sir, — Your correspondents "Felix" and "Veritas"' 
wax wroth at my suggestion that there are better posi- 
tions in pharmacy than in the stores, but as they grow 
older and get a wider outlook I venture to think they 
will be forced to the conclusion that they are wrong. In 
the satisfaction of getting a little more money they are- 
liable to overlook the fact that they are slowly but surely 
cutting their own throats. I contend that the stores will 
never displace the pharmacist who thoroughly knows his 
work and all that pharmacy implies. The man who hae 
the confidence of the doctor, the nurse, and the patient 
will always hold his own and be able to pay better 
salaries than the stores. After, say, ten years' service 
with the stores, if " Felix " should think he can leave 
and start in business on his own account, he will find he 
is lacking in the most vital business qualities. When 
he has to buy and pay his own accounts his confidence in 
himself may become shaken. When he has any momen- 
tous matter to decide he may go wrong, because the/ 
habit of leaning on other people will have become so 
strong that he will have lost the power to stand iipright. 
1 have had some experience of store trading, and have 
been a manager myself for them. They used to send me 
olive oil No. 1 and olive oil No. 2. These had to be 
sold. What matter if it were rancid ? One must not 
bother the works ; they have no time for letter-writing. 
The duties there were to sell as much as possible and 
be little trouble to headquarters. I vividly remember 
a circular letter to branches pointing out that in making 
liq. amnion, dil. the aq. dest. should be measured first, 
and not vice versa. Fancy pharmacists having to be 
reminded of this ! Can " Felix " and " Veritas " wonder 
that pharmacists who own their businesses will not. 
pay high salaries to men of that stamp? Yet "Felix" 
said " the cream of pharmacy " (implying pharmacists >

is going to the stores. If they are the cream, then the 
sooner we get separated the better. 

I admit there are poor and ill-paid situations with 
private pharmacists, but I maintain there are and will 
fee plenty of well-paid positions, and the men who prove 
their ability will not have to sell their qualification to 
the store. Let "Felix" and "Veritas" ask any cap- 
tain of industry who has made his mark what his greatest 
trouble is, and I am sure the reply will be, " Getting 
good men." Perhaps they will say that there are plenty 
of good men, but this has to be proved, and I have 
found men are not willing to be put to the test. 

An advertisement in your journal a year or so back 
•brought me over eighty replies. It is a fact that over 
fifty of these opened out by asking what the hours of 
business were and what salary I offered. It was not 
that they meant to earn all they could, but to get what 
they could, and there is a difference between the man 
who wants to earn and he who merely wants to get. 
I don't boast of superior intelligence or foresight : I 
simply state what I know. I repeat : " The cream of 
pharmacy " is not going to the stores, and there 
are better-paid posts in pharmacy than in the cash- 
chemist trade. It may not be long before some genius 
invents a machine to deliver the box of pills ready 
■wrapped in exchange for 10^d. Where will the man who 
now does this work and recommends the 9jf/. kind be 
then? 

Finally, what's wrong with pharmacy ? My answer is, 
The pharmacist." Set about making him think and 
look where he is going, and there is plenty and to spare 
for all of us. Let us not ask to be fed, but let us feed 
ourselves, and we shall be better pharmacists and make 
pharmacy better. What can we expect other than that 
■we ea.rn for ourselves ? Why should Parliament pass a 
Bill to protect us? If persons such as "Felix" and 
"Veritas " infuse some of their energy into their daily 
life, they will win through and become the proud posses- 
sors of profitable pharmacies. — Yours, 

Infelix. (65/46.)

Slippery Elm. 

Mr. W. F. Sanders (Budleigh Salterton), supplementing 
our reply to " W. M. T." (42/48), says: "I have frequently 
been asked for slippery-elm bark, when I have been sus- 
picious of the purpose it was going to be used for, but have 
never heard of its having been efficacious for the purpose.'' 

Slippery-elm bark powder is taken during the later period 
of pregnancy to ensure easy delivery. We ha.ve sold it occa- 
sionally for years for this purpose, and have reason to know 
that, owing to its mucilaginous character, it is very 
efficacious. — 11". Miles Bramley (Handsworth). 

The usefulness of slippery elm as an abortefacient lies in 
its mechanical action rather than medicinal value. It is 
usually purchased for this purpose in the form of long strips 
of the bark, which may be whittled clown to catheter-like 
proportions.— C, Brooks (The American Drug-stores Co.). 

Another subscriber (66/47) informs us that old women 
and herbalists in his district use the bark in straight pieces 
for insertion into the os uteri — in the manner of a sponge 
or tangle tent, we presume. This is, no doubt, what 
':' W. M. T." wanted to know. Under certain conditions 
(see C, cf- J). Diary, p. 445) sale of the bark for the purpose 
is unlawful.

is exempt from stamp-duty as a known, admitted, and 
approved remedy, and you may circulate the handbill with- 
out incurring the duty. 

Enerejiser (58/39). — The Poisons Schedule puts no limit 
upon the amount of tincture of nux vomica in prepara- 
tions or admixtures coming within the Schedule. A mix- 
ture containing 5 minims of the tincture in an ounce, that 
being a dose, is a legal poison, and may be sold only by 
registered chemists on the statutory conditions as to 
labelling. 

Cascara (66/30). — The housekeeper who entered your em- 
ployment last week, and who was not employed previously 
since the National Insurance Act came into force, has her 
card stamped as from the date of her employment by you. 
The previous weeks are not regarded as " arrears," and 
by Section 10 (4 c) no account is taken of arrears during 
the first twelve months after the commencement of the Act. 

Sheffield (53/25). — If no weekly half-holiday has been fixed 
by your local authority you are entitled under Section 4 (3) 
of the Shops Act to close your shop for other than exempted 
purposes on any half-day that you choose, and the day chosen 
has to be specified in a notice affixed in the shop as you 
correctly state, but no particular form for this notice has 
been prescribed by the Home Secretary in the regulations 
issued by him. Suitable wording for such a notice would 
be : " Under the Shop Acts, 1912, this shop is closed for the 
weekly half-holiday on Wednesdays at 1.30 p.m." 

Herbs (Southport) (65/25). — Although you do not employ 
any apprentice or assistant, you must close your shop at 
1.30 p.m. on one day weekly unless for the sale of medicines 
and medical and surgical appliances. Such a card as that 
which we publish in accordance with the regulations must 
be exhibited in your window and shop during closing 
hours. It is not necessary in your district, where no special 
closing order has been made as regards chemists, to shut 
your shop absolutely and to wait for customers to knock, 
but goods which are not exempted should be covered up 
as far as possible. 

H. W. (64/72). — Two fields, belonging to the same owner, 
have been separated by a grass-mead for over forty years. 
The son of the tenant of the fields, about five years ago. 
without the knowledge of the landlord, ploughed up the 
strip of grass-land, and thus threw the two fields into one. 
Will the tenant, who holds under a verbal agreement, be 
obliged to replace the mead on the termination of his 
tenancy ? [The tenant cannot be compelled to replace the 
mead, but if the ploughing up of the grass has caused a 
diminution in the value of, or otherwise injured, the free- 
hold, the landlord can sue the tenant for damages. The 
action must be brought within six years from the perpetra- 
tion of the damage. The landlord should endeavour to 
obtain an undertaking from the tenant to restore the mead 
at the end of his tenancy.] 



Miscellaneous Inquiries. 

We do not as a rule repeat information which has been given in this 
section oaring the past twelve months, as it occupies space 
which c?»n be more profitably utilised for other information. 
In such cases the numbers are mentioned, and if querists 
cannot refer to these they may obtain the numbers from the 
" C. & D." OffiSa at the published prices, usually 6d. 

We do not undertake to analyse and report upon proprietary articles, 
and when samples are sent particulars should be supplied to 
us as to their origin, what they are, what they are used for 
and how. 



R. M. (50/38). — A perfume such as citronella oil is 
generally considered best for disguising the odour of 
paraffin oil. 

Spare Time (39/70). — Technological Subjects cannot be 
studied with success at home, and one evening a week 
would not permit the majority of lecture courses on techno- 
logy in London to be followed properly. As you say, cir- 
cumstances prevent you (a Minor man) from proceeding to

a degree in science or the Institute of Chemistry qualifica- 
tion. Entry into the chemical, soap, or sugar industries 
is practically only possible as a sort of superior labourer, 
with consequent loss of salary as compared with that of 
your present post. Even collegiate-trained chemists have 
to obtain experience in works before their services are 
counted as of much value, and it is with difficulty that 
works chemists of rule-of-thumb type maintain their posi- 
tion against the increasing influx of college-trained chemists, 
who accept the low salaries which manufacturers think fit 
to offer. 

Bismuth (17/91). — White Oils. — Our correspondent uses the 
following formula : 

Ovium ... ... ... ... v. 

01. terebinth. 3xv. 

Ac. acetic, dil Oiss. 

Liq. plumbi fort 3ss. 

Spt. v. meth. ... ... ... 3iss. — M. 

This always becomes very thick after a few weeks, he 
says. He has tried it with yolks only, and also omitting 
the lead solution, with no better result. How can it 
be improved ? [The recipe is quite on conventional lines, 
and under normal conditions the product should be satis- 
factory ; in fact, we find it so after trial, giving it nearly 
four weeks to " prove its quality." It is fairly thick, 
which is no disadvantage, as people do not like such a pre- 
paration thin, but no clotting. We are consequently induced 
to conclude that either " Bismuth's " method of manipulation 
or the materials used are not the most suitable for the 
purpose. Acetic acid of the strength used in the prepara- 
tion does not coagulate egj-albumcn, and neither the methyl- 
ated spirit nor the lead solution is present in sufficient 
quantity to produce the condition complained of. There 
are two ways in which clotting may be produced. One is 
by the use of eggs which have been preserved in water- 
glass or other material in fashion ; the other is by the 
addition of acetic acid insufficiently diluted. Acetic acid of 
B.P. strength (33 per cent.) coagulates the egg-albumen, 
and glacial acetic acid diluted to the same strength causes 
even more pronounced precipitation. If the too-strong acid 
be brought into contact with the eggs, subsequent dilution 
of the mixture does not repair the damage done. We have 
found the following method of mixing the materials for 
such a preparation completely satisfactory. Adapting it 
to the above recipe, proceed thus : Mix the eggs thoroughly 
with 24i oz. of water, then add the turpentine gradually, 
shaking well after each addition ; after standing for a 
few hours add 3J oz. of acetic acid, 33 per cent. ; lastly add 
the lead solution and spirit. If the eggs be a fair size, 
four would be quite sufficient. If we may venture to 
criticise the recipe, we should say that the lead solution and 
spirit are out of place in a combination of this sort. They 
could well be displaced by an ounce of oil of eucalyptus 
or origanum or any similar essential oil.] 

E. H. M. (32/42).— Rendering Starched Linen Water- 
proof. — There are several methods of rendering starched 
cuffs and collars impervious to moisture, but all the pro- 
cesses have a resemblance. The following abstracts of 
various patents practically cover the methods : 

Mann (700,793 U.S. patent).— The starched articles are 
immersed in a solution of soluble cotton 5 oz. in amyl 
acetate or acetone 1 gal., and then passed at one sweep 
through a wringing-machine with rubber rollers. 

Closmann (861,435 U.S. patent). — The starched material 
is coated first with a liquid composed of pyroxylin 5 parts, 
zinc-white 1 part, amyl acetate 95 parts, and then with a 
plain solution of pvroxvlin in amyl acetate. 

Paschka and Koch (27.800/08) coat the articles with 
water-glass with or without the addition of barium 
chloride. 

Freidlander and Tuebben (23,547/09) employ a mixture 
of celluloid 6 parts, wax 1 part, acetone 93, applied with 
a sponge or by dipping. 

Douque (17,449/09) adds solution of basic aluminium 
acetate (8° to 10° B.) to the starch, and afterwards coats 
the starched articles with solution (3 to 5 per cent.) of cellu- 
lose acetate and celluloid solution (2 to 3 per cent.). 

Peters (870/10) uses a solution of sodium casein con- 
taining methvl aldehyde, glycerin, and a colouring-matter 
such as chalk or barium chloride. When this is dry 
solutions are employed containing trinitrocellulose or 
casein in solution. 

Bruchner (1,799/10) makes first a 3-per-CPnf. solution of 
zinc chloride in alcohol, to which is added acetic acid 
and acetone to make a 1-per-cent. solution. Next a mix- 
ture of equal parts of acetic acid and acetone has placed 
in it some zinc metal. Then the two solutions are mixed 
in the proportion of 1 to 3 of No. 2 to 100 of No. 1, and 
10 per cent, of collodion is added. 



Zimmer (24,006/09 and 6,519. 12,406/10) uses as a ground 
a 15-per-cent. solution of stearic acid in alcohol, and after 
this is dry a nitrocellulose solution containing a little 
castor oil is employed. Finally the starched articles are 
polished with pumice-stone, French chalk, and powdcied 
chalk. In the patent 6,519/10 the following solution is 
used : Camphor 5 parts, castor oil 5 parts, acetone 30 parts, 
alcohol 60 parts. A pigment can be added if necessary. 
The articles are then dried at 140° F. To make the 
finished goods uninflammable is the purpose of the third 
patent, a solution of cellulose acetate being employed. 

F. E. (171/24).— See C. <f' D., September 7, index folio 421, 
for title of book on sexual science. There is also a book 
entitled '"What a Young Husband Ought to Know," which 
would perhaps suit your customer. 

Aspirin (48/18).— Mail-order Business.— A book on this 
subject is Cody's " How to do Business by Letter and 
Advertising " (Constable, 5s.). You should also read an 
article dealing with this matter in the C. & D., January 27, 
1912, p. 165. 

/. C. H. (51/6).— Bleaching Feathers on Live Poultry.— 
The use of ether for this purpose is for removing grease, 
which otherwise protects the feathers almost entirely from 
the influence of bleaching agents. There are no other 
bleaching processes available than those to which we re- 
ferred in the C. <£• D., August 24, index folio 351. 

Pijro (57/34).— (1) Cigarette-paper Adhesive.— In the cir- 
cumstances you mention you would probably find that 
white of egg would be the best adhesive for the paper 
used in making .gold-tipped cigarettes. (2) Syrup of Hypo- 
phosphites. — The following formula embodies the xise of 
iron pyrophosphate as desired : 

Iron pyrophosphate gr. xv. 

Sodium hypophosphite gr. xlv. 

Quinine sulphate ... gr. v. 

Strvchninc (previously dissolved 

by itself) gr. ss. 

Manganese hypophosphite or sul- 
phate gr- xv. 

Thick syrup to 3xvj. (by weight) 

Dissolve the solids, except the strychnine, in 1 oz. of dis- 
tilled water with 2 or 3 drops of acid, sulph. dil. Instead 
of pure strychnine use liq. strych. hydrochlor., B.P., 3j., 
add to the solution, then mix with 11 fl. oz. of syrup, which 
gives the required weight. 

Spearmint (53/4).— Weather Indicator.— The gut employed 
in weather indicators is " sensitised " by wetting with a 
deliquescent salt— e.g.. magnesium or calcium chloride. 



Retrospect ot Fifty Years Ago. 

Reprinted from " The Chemist and Druggist," October 15. 186* 



"Who was the First Modern Cutter? 

September 26, 1862. 
Dear Sir,— I have often wondered which was the most 
lowering and reprehensible— puffing or cutting. Either, 
according to my idea, is very bad; but when both are com- 
bined as is frequently the case, then things indeed look 
queer. In this provincial town there is a member of the 
trade who tells us that we may have at his establishment 
Is lid. medicines for Is., 2s. M. for 2s. bd., and .so on. Not 
satisfied with this, he puts to us (the public) the momentous 
question, on a fairly printed handbill, not Have you seen 
Blondin ? Do you double up your perambulators / Hut 

'• Have you a bottle of 's diarrhoea-mixture in your 

house? "and winds up like the circus bills, " Working people 
may be supplied with a single dose for Ad." Now, who would 
have diarrhoea after this? Another case, though oi a 
different character, may be alluded to. We hear nowadays a 
good deal of one trade cutting into another. Linendrapers 
and fancy embroidery shopkeepers selling pomade and per- 
fumes, and various others selling things foreign to the trade 
proper. In little country villages this is not objected to, 
and chemists may even descend to paints, etc. ; but in a 
town, surely a chemist ought to be above selling paper, 
pens, envelopes, shilling novels, etc., etc., more particularly 
if he boasts M.P.S. Yours faithfully, 

DODDAH. 

[Henrv Hodder, of Bristol, was supposed to be the first 
cutter of patent medicines. The local advertisement of his 
"Patent Medicine Depot" was reprinted in the C. <fc D:, 
March 15. 1869. His prices were 10d., 2s. 4J,d., and 3s. 9a. 
There is no indication now of the town that " Doddah 
referred to, but the cutting mentioned was about seven years 
before Mr. Hoddej —Editor, C. & Z>.]

Advertising now started. Wholesalers already 
sending repeat orders. Are YOU able to meet 
the demand ? We guarantee the Sales. 
Unsold Bottles returnable at any time. 



"PIN EX" is a preparation compounded by a 
Pharmaceutical Chemist to take the place of a 
thousand and one home-made Cough remedies 
which are of little value in themselves, and of 
still less value to the Chemist. 

Instead of coming to your counter for two 
pennyworth of this and another pennyworth of 
that, customers will now come and ask for a 
2\ oz. bottle of " Pinex," which costs them 2/9, 
and leaves the Chemist a profit worth having. 

It's better business for you, and a more satis- 
factory purchase for them. 

They'll stil! make their Cough Mixture at 
home, using "Pinex" and simple sugar syrup ; 
but it will be a mixture that will cure, that you 
can GUARANTEE will cure. And we stand 
behind such guarantee. 

" Pinex " won't injure your trade in ordinary 
cough mixtures ; it will create new trade for you 



and bring new customers to your counter. People 
who won't buy ordinary cough mixtures will buy 
" Pinex," — and the Sales repeat. 

" Pinex " Advertising has already commenced. 
Long series of insertions have been ordered in the 
leading newspapers of the country. The demand 
will be great and continuous. 

Don't lose any sales; don't let your customers 
find it necessary to go elsewhere for " Pinex." 
Order a supply AT ONCE from your whole- 
saler, even if it be only j dozen. You CAN'T 
MAKE A LOSS. We guarantee the sales. 
Unsold bottles returnable at any time. 

We also guarantee " Pinex " to your Cus- 
tomers — money back IN FULL if not satisfied, 
WITHOUT TOUCHING THE PROFIT 
YOU HAVE EARNED ON THE SALE.

RENDELL'S 

SOLUBLE QUININE PESSARIES. 

THE WORLD-WIDE REPUTATION that these Pessaries have obtained since their invention by W. J. 
Rendell in 1885 has induced unscrupulous persons to place upon the market worthless and injurious 
compounds, with colourable imitations of W. J. Rendell's labels. To distinguish the genuine Pessaries 
from these fraudulent concoctions, see that the Registered Trade Mark and Number, in RED IN K, 

are upon each box thus : 




Registered 
Trade Mark, 
without which 
none are genuine. 
No. 182,688. 




No. 182,688.

IV" IMPORTANT NOTICE AND CAUTION. 

Beveral injunctions in the High Court of Justice having already been obtained (reports of which have appeared in ' ' THH 
CHEMIST AND DRUGGIST"), W. J. RENDELL'S SOLICITORS are instructed to take proceedings against all persons 
(Makers or Vendors) fraudulently using the name of " W. J. RENDELL," "RENDELL," or any colourable imitation 

thereof in connection with Pessaries NOT manufactured by

A POWERFUL NERVE AND BRAIN FOOD 

VlS€M 

W (Seed of Strength) 



VISEM consists of milk casein and whey powder, 
with 3% of pure lecithin-ovo and 3% of glycero- 
phosphate of soda. The casein used is made 
from milk produced on some of the finest pastures 
in the Kingdom, by a special process which yields a 
pleasant flavour, and retains the proteins in a soluble 
state. It is also rich in soluble organic phosphorus. 



VISEM is made up in the form of tablets.which are 
eaten like biscuits. These tablets can be taken 
at any time and under any circumstances, 
and are obviously more convenient than prepara- 
tions which have to be dissolved in hot water, milk, 
&c. It has an agreeable flavour which is distinctly 
superior to that of any other casein preparation. 



VISEM is being largely and effectively advertised in the great national newspapers. 

VISEM is also extensively advertised in the medical journals and doctors are largely prescribing it. 

Beautiful showcards and interesting literature will be supplied to the trade. 



Price 13 6 per dozen boxes. 

P.A.T.A. Minimum re-selling price 1/6 per box.

upwards, and competition was never so keen. 
Diagnosis is easy, the remedy not always apparent, for to increase returns more 
custom must be brought in. 



We are prepared to show you how we will 
help you to largely increase your returns. 



IT WILL COST YOU 
NOTHING ! 



Then why not investigate?

THE CHEMIST AND DEUGGIST SUPPLEMENT 



October 5, 1912 



The Shops Act, 1912. 



The following are brief particulars of recent local 
arrangements : 

Belfast.— At the weekly meeting of the Belfast Corpora- 
tion on October 1 it was stated that during the month 
voting-papers were sent out on the proposed order to fix 
Wednesday or Saturday as the weekly half-holiday in the 
case of all shops in the city in which is carried on the 
trade or business of a pharmaceutical chemjst, chemist and 
druggist, or registered druggist, and that the draft order, 
as set out in the voting-paper, provided that nothing in 
the order shall prohibit the sale of medicines, medical or 
surgical appliances in cases of sickness. The Town Clerk 
reported that the acting Tow^n Solicitor advised that it 
would be impracticable to make the order as drafted, and 
recommended that the words "in ease of sickness" be 
deleted therefrom, and it was resolved that the draft order 
be amended accordingly, and that the ToNvn Clerk be 
authorised to forward to each shopkeeper affected an 
amended voting-paper to take the place of the paper already
